Publisher's Summary

In this hour, James William Gibson teaches sociology and is the author of A Re-enchanted World: The Quest for a New Kinship with Nature. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about ways in which people are seeking to reconnect with the natural world and to protect it, rather than simply exploit it as a resource.

Next, Amy Stewart is the author mostrecently of Wicked Plants. She talks with Jim Fleming about plants, including some very lovely, common garden varieties, that can kill you. The lesson is: Don't eat it unless youre sure you know what it is.

Then, Richard Reynolds tells Anne Strainchamps about his adventures as a guerrilla gardener, that is, someone who tends someone else's land for harvest. Reynolds blogs about the phenomenon on his website and is the author of On Guerrilla Gardening: A Handbook for Gardening Without Boundaries.

After that, Erin Clune brings us and her family to tour the garden of Izadore Fine and Mary Gray who've planted thousands of flowering bulbs on their property in Madison, Wisconsin. Their garden is so spectacular, all the neighbors drop by to wander around.

Finally, architect Charles Jencks and his late wife started a private garden to explore scientific concepts through landscape art. Jencks published a book of photographs of The Garden of Cosmic Speculation, which inspired composer Michael Gandolfi to create a piece further exploring the same ideas. Jencks and Gandolfi take Steve Paulson on a tour through the musical composition and the garden that inspired it. [Broadcast Date: April 16, 2010]
