Santiago Beruete in conversation with Rosana Arizmendi

Gardernsophy, Greenery and A piece of land

Jericó 2023, 

From the hanging gardens of Babylon to the organic gardens of the "urban guerrillas", the garden has been a reflection of society. The way we use the "tamed nature" of gardens evolves with the world and with each individual. Santiago Beruete (Spain), academic, philosopher and gardener, reflects in his latest book, Un trozo de tierra (A piece of land), on the urgency and necessity of preserving the environment, offering us a close and intimate look at nature, which is both our environment and our livelihood. This work continues the cycle of other texts by Beruete, such as Jardinosofía (Gardensophy), Verdolatría (Greenery) and Aprendívoros (Learnvorous). In conversation with Rosana Arizmendi.
