About the event: Arranging colorful flowers calms the mind and feeds the soul - what better way to celebrate spring than to arrange beautiful locally-grown flowers inside our magical garden? Join sustainable floral designer Molly Culver of Molly Oliver Flowers for a hands-on workshop. You’ll learn how to source locally grown flowers around NYC and make a basic arrangement at home.
Together, we'll walk the garden and discuss what is in bloom in the garden and the seasonal blooms plucked from NYC and the surrounding region, review design tips, flower care, and devote the majority of our workshop to enjoying our time arranging!
