Florida Native Plant Society Broward Chapter Members Meeting
April 10th, 7pm / Secret Woods Nature Center
Presentation By Rebecca Bradley and Stephanie Dunn of Cadence
During World Landscape Architecture Month
Landscape architects vow to create places that serve the higher purpose of social and ecological justice for all people and species. During this presentation, meet a Florida-based landscape architecture firm committed to the practice of native plants in design and the opportunities and constraints that arise.
As landscape architects, Cadence crafts and orchestrates outdoor environments. They are keenly aware of how their decisions affect the natural environment, the user experience and the client’s budget. Each new project is an opportunity to transform how people interact with the environment while meeting the triple bottom line. Their projects find solutions that bring forth the power of connecting to nature. The landscape offers society endless benefits – education, reduction of stress, improved wellness, and economic renewal can all be derived from a strong connection with the natural environment.
Living and working in South Florida, Cadence is inspired by the area’s remaining natural lands and wilderness. With many of their project sites located in a landscape already shaped by human activity, they strive to lessen the negative impact of human development through the implementation of native plants that echo the regional landscape and create a “sense of place”. Cadence believes that native plants offer as much design value as traditional exotic plants used in most cultivated landscapes while providing considerably more in terms of ecological and environmental value.
