Drawing Attention to The Cultural Landscape Foundation

One of the favorite entries I look forward to seeing in my in-box each month that pertains to Garden History and Design is the one I receive from the Cultural Landscape Foundation. The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s (TCLF) mission is to connect people to places by educating and engaging the public to make our shared landscape heritage more visible. According to TCLF, “cultural landscapes are landscapes that have been affected, influenced, or shaped by human involvement. It can be thousands of acres or a tiny homestead. It can be a grand estate, industrial site, park, garden, cemetery, campus, and more. Collectively, cultural landscapes are works of art, narratives of culture, and expressions of regional identity.”  It is this attention to the human connection which always moves me.  Among many interesting programs TCLF offers, I invite you to take a peek at Garden Dialogues, a program that provides unique opportunities to experience some of today’s most beautiful gardens created by some of the most accomplished designers currently in practice. In honor of The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s twentieth anniversary in 2018, Garden Dialogues, is presenting “Twenty for Twenty” – a special program highlighting twenty private residential landscape examples throughout the U.S.  What a great way to learn first-hand from landscape architects, and their clients, about their secrets to creating great gardens.  Click hereto learn more about Garden Dialogues.And to bring this even closer to home…..TCLF offers information specific to DENVER in its “What’s Out There Denver Guide.”   Check it out to see highlights on Denver’s parks and open space network.  Explore Denver’s unique landscapes and the talented designers that have made these landscapes so popular and well known. The fun starts when you go to www.tclf.org to learn more.
