Sustainable Floral Design: The Ethics and the Mechanics

An essential evening for all florists and floral designers who want to design in a more sustainable way.

Shane Connolly will chair a panel of growers, flower designers and event designers at the Garden Museum where they will discuss the challenges and share their solutions.

This is not an evening just for the converted but also for those struggling with foam-free mechanics and sustainable sourcing of flowers. We will be examining the ethics and sharing the issues and solutions, with plenty of time for questions too.

Panelists include: Shane Connolly, Ruth Davis from All for Love London, Kitten Grayson with Jane Scotter of Fern Verrow, Simon Lycett and Wolves Lane Flower Company, with more TBA.
