Debra Prinzing, award–winning author and outdoor living expert will reveal the “big picture” story about the resurgence of American flower farms and the emerging eco–floral design movement. Discover a healthier alternative, for you, your home, and the planet. It calls for living seasonally and locally, using a sustainable approach to flower consumption and floral design. Her visually–elegant presentation explores the “slow–flower” concept featured in The 50 Mile Bouquet, her 2011 book that discusses local, seasonal and sustainable ways to use flowers often times grown right in your own backyard. The presentation will also feature the personal projects from Debra’s new book, Slow Flowers: Four Seasons of Locally Grown Bouquets from the Garden, Meadow and Farm. Learn who is leading this movement, how to source locally–grown flowers in your community and why this cultural shift is so important to gardeners. A book sale and signing will immediately follow the presentation.
