Erratum In Ground 57, Spring 2022, photos 02-04 and 09 of the “Decolonizing Landscape Architecture” round table should have been credited to Sheila Boudreau, instead of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. We regret the error.
would like to apologize for not making specific mention by name in the captions for these photos of the Nikibii Dawadinna Giigwag – Indigenous Youth Access Program at the University of Toronto, and the work Elder Whabagoon and Daniels Faculty Associate Professor Liat Margolis continue to do to develop a land-based program, which introduces Indigenous youth to postsecondary education and career pathways in landscape architecture and environmental sciences.

Ground Advisory Panel
Advisory Panel Message and a Call to All for Contributions
In an effort to streamline the editorial process for Ground, and after much deliberation, the Editorial Board has decided to dissolve the Advisory Panel. Ground would like to express heartfelt thanks to Panel members, past and present, for their contributions to over 50 issues of the magazine. This was a difficult decision, but one we are confident will maintain the energy and imagination necessary for future issues. What is needed most, at this time, is a robust and diverse Editorial Board and contributing writers. Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to email [email protected], Subject Line: Volunteering. You do not need to be an OALA member or landscape architect to contribute to either the Editorial Board or the magazine, and anyone who expresses interest will be seriously considered.
