These trends and innovations are redefining every aspect of gardening in the West—and changing the way we live, eat, and connect with one another
You don’t have to be a gardener to feel the impact of their efforts. You’ll experience it in restaurants that offer never-before-tasted vegetables, and in supermarkets, where you can now buy sustainably grown cut flowers. You’ll see it on formerly sun-baked city streets where today trees grow lush and green, and in the new “wilderness parks” that bring nature to ever-sprawling downtowns. Meet 10 visionaries and the trends they've spearheaded that show us what it means to make a difference in the West through gardening.
