Description

The farming methods that the Spanish introduced after 1540 and the traditions of landscape design and gardening, dating back to the Chaco people can be observed in the landscapes of modern New Mexico. At 1:00 p.m. professor and author, Baker Morrow, will compare and contrast these two distinct approaches to outdoor design.

Morrow is the founder of the Master of Landscape Architecture Program at UNM’s School of Architecture and Planning, where he continues to serve as the University’s first Professor of Practice. Morrow is author of Best Plants for New Mexico Gardens and Landscapes and the co-editor of Canyon Gardens: The Ancient Pueblo Landscapes of the American Southwest. Most recently, Morrow translated Cabeza de Vaca’s The South American Expeditions, 1540-1545.
