GARDEN DESIGN is once again an educational partner with Landslide, the Cultural Landscape Foundation's annual thematic compendium of at-risk landscapes. Learn about this annual event, which highlights landscapes that are being threatened, including the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden (above), which was spotlighted in 2009, and luckily, saved in 2011. Remember to submit your nominations for this year's Landslide. Nominations are due May 31, 2012.
Landscape architect Jens Jensen (1860 to 1951), designer of numerous parks in Chicago (and around the country), including the Garfield Park Conservatory (above), is the subject of a new documentary, Jens Jensen: Harmonious World, which will be shown on PBS this fall.
A reminder about some Cultural Landscape Foundation garden tours that are coming up, as well as the deadline for Landslide: Landscape and Patronage's call for nominations—Landslide is a program that highlights endangered landscapes around the country.
