Designing in the Prairie Spirit: Darrel Morrison

I had the pleasure of teaching along with Darrel Morrison at Columbia University for these last few years. Darrell is an outstanding landscape designer, thinker and teacher. And you should know about him.

While he was teaching he also worked on several wonderful landscape projects including the NY Botanical Garden's new Native Plant Center.

Here is a lovely video that I think anyone would thoroughly enjoy! His words are so heart felt and eloquent.

Bravo, Daryl! I hope you spread your magic around the world.
