Sustainable Landscapes

by Maureen McCabe on April 10, 2007

Springfield is not Columbus but it is close… It is worth the short drive to vist the The Westcott House in my opinion… I got an email about a lecture… “Sustainable Landscapes: Past and Present” which is NOT at The Wescott House but is related to this Frank Lloyd Wright gem in Ohio.

As garden season starts… really the snow will stop soon won’t it? … there’s a lecture on “Sustainable Landscapes: Past and Present” tomorrow, Tuesday, April 10, 2007, at 7:00 p.m.

Carol J. H. Yetken, CYLA Design Associates, Oak Park, Illionois will lecture about sustainable landscapes.

the email I got says:

“What is sustainable landscape? Can a thoughtful design process improve the quality of life and secure a healthy environment for future generations? Can one learn from the past? Carol J. H. Yetken will address these questions while talking about the different approaches to the art of landscaping, past and present. A practicing landscape architect, Ms. Yetken is a founder of CYLA Design Associate. She also teaches at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified Professional, and her firm is a member of the U. S. Green Building Council. Ms. Yetken developed the landscape reconstruction plan for The Westcott House site.”

Location: Barbara Deer Kuss Science Center, Wittenberg University, Bayley Auditorium (at the corner of Bill Edwards Drive & Plum Street)

Single Lecture Admission: $15, WHF Members: $10, Free Admission for Students With Valid I.D.

For tickets, Call: 937-327-9291. Tickets will also be available at the Auditorium 15 minutes prior to all the lectures

We of course have FLW fans in Central Ohio and quite a few homes that were inspired by Frank Llloyd Wright.
