"Designing a Patchwork Ecology in Urban Ecosystems" David Seiter at the Ecological Landscape Alliance 2018 Conference

David Seiter is speaking at the Ecological Landscape Conference today at UMASS Amherst in Amherst, MA at 10:30am. Additionally, there will be a SUP book signing at the university bookstore

Mr. Seiter will investigate the role of wild plants in the urban ecosystem by profiling a cross section of weeds. By comparing the principles of urban ecology with those of aesthetic design, Mr. Seiter challenges contemporary concepts and cultural perceptions about the value of weeds. His intent is to stimulate a discourse between ecologists, landscape architects, and policy-makers that explores societal perceptions of weeds and questions the stigmas that surround them.
