The American Society of Landscape Architects is looking for both men and women to complete a survey to help them better understand the topic of talent retention by gender and race. What are the underlying tensions that persist throughout our professional lives and what are the professional and personal milestones that affect career progression. Please take the survey, and pass it along to other current or former landscape architects, both MEN and WOMEN. We think this will be extremely valuable information.
Waterfire is a Providence must - this cultural phenomenon has been transforming the urban experience and engaging the community since the installation of Barnaby Evan's sculpture in 1994 and continues to grow each year. Go enjoy the sights and sounds for yourself tomorrow night (July 23)!

SDG was honored to be a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Reading Terrace and outdoor wi-fi access area at the East Greenwich Free Library today. Many talented and generous people contributed to this project: not least of which was the Damon Company and their sub-contractors who made our designs a reality, and the Library Board, all of whom were such a joy to work with... Many thanks to this wonderful group. We hope to work with you all again in the future in some capacity!
Thank you to everyone who came out last night to help us celebrate the firm's 40th anniversary. We appreciate your support over the years and hope to continue for many more. Thanks especially to Charlie Cannon and Evelyn Hafferty for the Forest Street Farm T-shirts!
Fall is in the air and the plants are in the ground at the East Greenwich Free Library at 82 Peirce St. Library patrons and staff alike are already reporting a boost in mood and energy that comes from walking through a garden to get into the Library, according to Karen Taylor, Library Director. That's why we got into landscape architecture!
