Gardens of Soul, Under Western Skies, with photographer Caitlin Atkinson

Cultivating Place show

Summary: CAITLIN ATKINSON is a photographer of places, spaces, and all things botanical. She has been my partner this past 2 + years in creating our new book Under Western Skies, Visionary Gardens from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast, publishing on May 11 of 2021. Conceived by Caitlin, the book is really an expression of our shared love for the places and plants and plantspeople of the West crafting garden spaces of soul, and this week on Cultivating Place, Caitlin joins me in conversation to discuss more deeply this passion project of ours. Listen in - the views are stunning (and soulful). Cultivating Place now has a donate button! We thank you so much for listening over the years and we hope you'll support Cultivating Place. We can't thank you enough for making it possible for this young program to grow even more of these types of conversations.
