Meet Tom Smarr, Director of Horticulture at Friends of The High Line. For IPMDAY 2015, we’ll be getting some sun and enjoying the weather while talking on the topic of “Innovative Sustainable Horticulture Management.”
The founders of the High Line showed the world how an unwanted landscape relic could be turned into a beautiful, and usable, public space; thereby providing a renowned model of adaptive reuse. Today, the continued operation of the park is equally as carefully designed and innovative.
The landscaping on the High Line was designed to idealize nature in an urban setting, and its plant selection and horticulture management techniques are calibrated to maintain that nature.
Get ready; find out how these innovative, sustainable methods – ranging from composting, to integrated pest management, to the use of sustainable cleaning products, to water flow design – lead to an environment where our plants can thrive and our surroundings can remain clean and beautiful for the visitors of today and for future generations.
