This week on Cultivating Place we gain a little perspective with a lot of altitude as we begin a two-part series on 'Gardening at Elevation’. Isa Catto is a mother and partner, a fine and textile artist, a gardener, and a writer. Isa’s multi-faceted gardens at 8,000 ft in Woody Creek, Colorado are rooted in generations of family. in connection to community, and in love of place. Her gardens feed her family, her creativity, her soul, and her desire to contribute. Isa’s gardens, called Mojo Gardens are featured in Under Western Skies, Visionary Gardens from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast (Timber Press, 2021) on which I collaborated with photographer Caitlin Atkinson. I will be joining Isa in Aspen, Colorado this summer as the Jessica Catto Dialogues speaker for the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies on the 11th of August. Isa joins us this week to share more about her artistic garden life story. Listen in! Cultivating Place now has a donate button!
