Designing with Nature for Wellbeing
Pints With Planners is a great podcast published by the Oregon Chapter of the American Planning Association, aimed at demystifying urban planning. I recently listened to this loosely-structured forum that is geared to make you feel like you’re sitting in a pub having a great conversation with Steve Nygren and the hosts. Steve is the founder and CEO of Serenbe, a wellness community created as a model to demonstrate that preserving 70% of greenspace interlaced with agriculture, housing, and retail is not only economically viable, but the future of community wellbeing. This episode focused on Steve’s experience in the founding of Serenbe, and how he has become a thought leader in meaningful and innovative community design in the spirit of Ebenezer Howard and Ian McHarg. Steve’s passion shines through this wide-ranging conversation recorded in the summer of 2018 in Denver.”
