In our second episode focusing on the inspiring beauty of dry gardens and the plants and people who love them, Cultivating Place is joined this week by photo journalist Saxon Holt. The sole photographer on more than 30 garden books, Saxon is also owner of the PhotoBotanic Garden library and director of the Summer-Dry Project. Saxon’s most recent book, a collaboration with writer Nora Harlow, is Gardening in Summer-Dry Climates, plants for a lush, water-conscious landscape, published by Timber Press in 2020. The vision of the Summer-Dry Project is that "in the midst of tumultuous climate change, it’s all the more important that gardeners be stewards of the land, attuned to the local environment on behalf of all creatures. The Summer-Dry Project provides gardeners in summer-dry climates authoritative plant information and inspiring photos that encourage sustainable garden practices."
