Lecture: AMERICAN BEAUTY: The Slow Flowers Story

September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Denver Botanic Gardens’ mission of connecting people with plants, DBG is excited to bring you our annual lecture and workshop series April – October.

Lecture: AMERICAN BEAUTY: The Slow Flowers Story
Speaker: Debra Prinzing

The American landscape is undergoing a floral renaissance— in rural, agricultural areas and in urban postage-stamp-sized parcels. There is a heightened interest in local and seasonal flowers as an economic opportunity for farmers and florists alike, fueled by the Slow Flowers movement. Debra Prinzing, a leader of the movement, shares an update and a forecast—where we’ve come from and where we are headed—as she talks about people, places, fields, greenhouses and gardens; ideas and innovations; and the progressive momentum that’s changing our relationship with flowers.

Instructor: Debra Prinzing is a Seattle-based writer, speaker and leading advocate for American Grown Flowers. Through her many Slow Flowers-branded projects, she has convened a national conversation that stimulates consumers and professionals alike to make conscious choices about their floral purchases.
