The episode moves from the English country garden to the landed estates of the eighteenth-century aristocracy, from settler colonial economic botany to the un-paving of Detroit. In doing so, it surfaces the entangled, often traumatic colonial and imperial histories of plants and gardens, while tending the green shoots of a more hopeful and collective future.
Featuring contributions from Kim TallBear, Gertrude Jekyll, Rebecca Solnit, Miranda Lowe and Esiah Levy, among many others.
