The Eco Garden Audit with Rochelle Greayer

The Eco Garden Audit: How to Sequester Carbon, Increase Resiliency & Design Greener Gardens

Rochelle’s popular new lecture discusses how we can evolve our garden design aesthetics to create unique, beautiful spaces that also support landscapes with greater environmental resiliency. 

Goals :

  • Shrink your landscape’s carbon footprint
  • Adjust our design practices to create gardens and yards that are better able to flourish in new, ever changing, challenging and unpredictable climate conditions.
  • Ways to assist other species as they adapt too. 

Rochelle will present a framework for how you can think differently about the ecosystem that is your garden and how to be more ecologically and climate friendly. 


 Live Lecture on Feb. 5th, 2022 at 1:00 pm

Replay will be available afterwards.



There will be a downloadable handout for this lecture (available after the Live Session).


What People Are Saying:

Rochelle, your talk was fabulous. I particularly enjoyed how you made clear that our idea of the "perfect garden" is a construct, and can be reconsidered in light of climate science. When it comes to the "domestic arts" (is gardening one of those?) people tend to be conservative, so it's tremendously exciting to be given permission to get creative, and do the right things for the environment at the same time. I'm certainly going to look at the weeds and mosses growing in front of my house with more affection!

I really enjoyed Rochelle's talk, could have listened to her for a lot longer. Thanks to you and HCT for presenting this.

Thank you for organizing and hosting the Eco-garden seminar. It was professional, thoughtful and informative, and good for Harvard! I'm excited to put some (most, if possible) ideas into practice, the first step being to convince my husband to compromise his large, expansive flat lawn. Looking forward to spring and thanks again!
