Five Seasons: Film and Discussion on Urban Landscaping

With increasing awareness of nature’s fragility, landscape designers in recent years have sought to bring more wildness to urban green spaces. Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf has been at the forefront of this new approach to gardening, creating such notable sites as the High Line greenway in New York City and Lurie Garden in Chicago. The film Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf considers the vision and achievement of Oudolf in the Netherlands and the U.S., providing many suggestions for other urban areas that wish to reconsider their approach to landscaping.

Following the hour-long screening of the film on Oudolf, the following panelists will discuss green space in Pocatello and how institutions and private individuals can plant in such a way to support birds and beneficial insects while still keeping in mind the human desire for beauty:

—Jacob Berger, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Idaho State University
—David Delehanty, Professor of Biological Sciences, Idaho State University
—Alissa Salmore, Landscape Architect and Environmental Planner, Idaho Department of Transportation

The discussion will be moderated by Curt Whitaker, Professor of English at ISU; the event is co-sponsored by ISU's Department of English and Philosophy, the English Graduate Student Association, and Portneuf Valley Audubon. Admission is free.

Time: Thursday, February 21, 7:00-9:30 p.m.
Place: Wood River Room, ISU Student Union Building.
