On the surface, One Nature is a landscape design business and nursery, but that doesn’t fully describe it. Its real work, as you’ll hear in this interview with Blair Patterson, is the engineering of outdoor spaces that build community and biodiversity.

Blair started working at One Nature in 2016 as a temporary nursery hand after deciding that her career in metal fabrication was not worth the physical toll. In the years since she joined, One Nature has designed more than 100 gardens in Beacon, helping to create an interlinked network of pollinator friendly zones full of native plants. And its public projects in Beacon, Newburgh and surrounding areas have brought people together. In this episode she describes some of One Nature’s projects, and shares simple things listeners can do to create habitat in Beacon and the Hudson Valley.
