Trophic Cascades with poet & gardener Camille Dungy, BEST OF

Cultivating Place show

Summary: As another offering to all of you in this Autumnal planting and planning period, a revisit and reminder of the poetics involved as well as the pragmatics, in conversation with award-winning poet and long-time home gardener Camille Dungy. Camille is the author of four collections of poetry, most recently Trophic Cascade (Wesleyan UP, 2017), winner of the Colorado Book Award, and the essay collection Guidebook to Relative Strangers: Journeys into Race, Motherhood and History (W.W. Norton, 2017), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Camille is also a University Distinguished Professor at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. In our conversation, we explore the intertwining of poetry, gardening, life, and trophic cascades in each of them. Listen in! Cultivating Place now has a donate button!
