Event Type

What if our backyards could inspire, challenge, and delight us in the same ways that wild places do? Join landscape architect Toby Wolf as he shows how designed landscapes can draw from the ecology and the human experience of fields and forests. He will describe design strategies that not only support biodiversity and protect waterways, but also foster meaningful encounters with the natural world. Along the way, Toby will highlight native plant species that can bring life and resilience to New England gardens.

Toby Wolf is the owner of Wolf Landscape Architecture in Groton. His projects include the Curtis Cottage garden at Garden in the Woods, the Welcome Center and Bioswale at Cornell Botanic Gardens, four parks on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston, and the planting design for the Robert W. Wilson Overlook at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Mr. Wolf serves on the Horticulture Committee of the Friends of the Public Garden and is a past president of the Ecological Landscape Alliance. He earned his MLA in Landscape Architecture at Cornell University, and his BA in Design of the Environment at the University of Pennsylvania.
