Though the effects of climate change are more visible every year, it is still largely not a tangible phenomenon in day-to-day life—which is one of the reasons it’s hard to galvanize action to prevent it. The Climate Garden experience attempts to solve that problem by enabling people to experience the anticipated effects of climate change firsthand. How will the vegetation common to a place change? What food will we be eating in consequence?
This book, illustrated with atmospheric images by photographer Nina Mann, serves as a manual for the implementation of such a public experiment on a local or regional level anywhere in the world. Contributions by human geographers, art historians, and ecologists are complemented by a step-by-step guide to creating a climate garden so that people can begin to truly grasp the reality of the problem and its effects.
