Brie Arthur has fine-tuned her signature design technique of Foodscaping, a sustainable landscape practice that embraces beauty and utility. Working with public school systems and suburban developments, Arthur is changing the way green spaces are designed and utilized. Encouraging everyone to “think outside of the box,” Arthur advocates for integrating edibles into the traditional ornamental landscape, thereby increasing bio-diversity and adding purpose to everyday spaces. The best edible and ornamental plant pairings are featured in this talk, and organic growing insights are shared to encourage professionals and homeowners alike to embrace sustainable practices.

Brie Arthur studied landscape design and horticulture at Purdue University. After more than a decade of experience as a grower and propagator, she now combines her passion for plants and sustainable land management by communicating the value of gardening across the U.S. She appears on the PBS Television show “Growing a Greener World,” and her debut book “The Foodscape Revolution” is a best seller. Arthur was honored in 2017 as the first recipient of the American Horticultural Society's Emerging Horticultural Professional Award.
