Here we are looking across the Children’s Garden in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on Long Island. In the background are the architecturally bland apartments which occupy what was once the Dodger’s Ebbet’s Field. Such landscapes as this are essential for the health of urban residents, places whose purpose is to focus city residents on the living world, a garden built for our edification, our pleasure and as an important reminder of what came first, the essential world that preceded and supports all that has arisen out of industrialization and both massive population growth and resource consumption.
