Lessons through Nature Series
Composting: Decomposition and Making Room for Growth | January 21 IN-PERSON
In natural systems, decomposition is an important part of the circle of life. It is the mechanism by which dead, complex, organic matter is broken down into simpler compounds. Composting mimics the natural process of decomposition using four, main components. In this lesson, we embrace the decomposition process as we explore our own unique compost mixture to stimulate our growth and cultivate our best self. Instructor: Sarah Croscutt
Voice: The Language of Flowers | April 15 IN-PERSON
Floriography, or the language of flowers, is the covert expression of one’s feelings through flowers and flower arrangement. Although this practice has been in place for thousands of years in Europe, Asia, and Africa, it is closely associated with England’s Victorian Era. Messages and feelings were expressed through the language of flowers in gifts of small bouquets, called tussie-mussies. Using the Garden as inspiration, we will explore the language of flowers and find our own voice within the world of plants, creating our own tussie-mussie to express our thoughts and feelings. Instructor: Sarah Croscutt
