DAVID SEITER'S INTERVIEW FOR PRI'S Living On Earth PODCAST IS NOW AVAILABLE TO LISTEN ONLINE!


David Seiter's interview with Helen Palmer aired this week on PRI's Living on Earth with Steve Curwood.

In the interview, Seiter introduces weeds on the street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. He discusses the project's ambition to re-brand the perception of spontaneous urban plants, the neglected plants thriving in the city. The interview features Future Green Studio's project Nowadays and how the project was inspired to work with weeds growing at the existing site.

“There's no particular reason why many of these plants are called weeds, except they are growing in places we don't necessarily want them to grow. So if we expand our definition of what's acceptable, I think we'll find many of these plants offer this kind of hidden or overlooked ecology to the city.”

Check out the article "A New Book Explores The Hidden Value of Weeds" by Adam Wernick on the interview.
