GROW NOW, gardens as climate activism, with Emily Murphy

Cultivating Place show

Summary: Emily Murphy is an ecological gardener, an educator, and an author whose two books focus on gardens of personal and communal purpose. Her 2018 book Grow What You Love, is joined this year by Grow Now: How We Can Save our Health, Communities and Planet One Garden at a Time. With the 2022 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reporting on the impacts, adaptations, and vulnerabilities and dangerous disruption of climate change on our natural systems - disruption affecting billions of people and millions of species - there is an ever greater urgency to act on all levels. Emily Murphy joins us this week to highlight the importance of our gardens as really immediate and direct points of climate activism - contributing to saving our planet one garden at a time.
