Theme :
Traditional Gardening and Landscapes

Traditional gardening techniques are at the roots of a community’s well-being, both physiologically and culturally. Cultivating a relationship with nature and having a traditional understanding of how a landscape works allows communities to grow the food they need. At the same time, as communities and family units work the land, they forge close ties with each other and nature. In this volume, we look at traditional gardening and landscapes in the Asia-Pacific region and examine how gardening and landscape management helped to grow communities in China, Thailand, Tajikistan, and Sri Lanka.
