Four Seasons of Locally Grown Bouquets

california_woodside_filoli“Slow Flowers: Four Seasons of Locally Grown Bouquets from the Garden, Meadow and Farm” is the topic for a presentation at Fioli, 86 Cañada Road, Woodside, California, set for 10:30 a.m. October 23, 2015.

Debra Prinzing, a Seattle and Los Angeles-based outdoor living expert and author will reveal the “big picture” story about the resurgence of American flower farms and the emerging eco-floral design movement. She will present healthier alternatives for individuals, their homes, and the planet, talking about living seasonally and locally, using a sustainable approach to flower consumption and floral design.

Debra’s 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 people’s own backyards.

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. The audience will learn who is leading this movement, how to source locally-grown flowers, and why this cultural shift is so important to gardeners. A book sale and signing will immediately follow the presentation.

The $50 admission fee includes same day admission to Filoli’s House and Garden, Café and Garden & Gift Shop.
