Lecture - AMERICAN BEAUTY: The Slow Flowers Story

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.

 

Debra is the producer of SlowFlowers.com, the online directory to American grown farms, florists, shops and studios who supply domestic and local flowers. Each Wednesday, approximately 2,500 listeners tune into Debra's "Slow Flowers Podcast," available for free downloads at her website, debraprinzing.com, or on iTunes and via other podcast services.

 

She is the creator of American Flowers Week, launched during the July 4th week in 2015 with more than 5.0 million social media impressions in 2017. Debra is a Florists' Review Contributing Editor for which produces the "Slow Flowers Journal" section.

 

In 2016, the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market, a farm-to-florist cooperative, honored Debra with the first Growers Choice Award for her "outstanding contributions to revitalizing the local floral community." She is a 2016 inductee to the Garden Writers Association Hall of Fame and the author of 10 books, including “Slow Flowers” and “The 50 Mile Bouquet.”

Great art picks up where nature ends. ~Marc Chagall

 

With the support of the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and in line with the Gardens’ mission, of connecting people with plants, we are excited to bring you a series designed to push the boundaries of horticulture practices and redefine your understanding of art and gardens. We hope to spark your creativity, and broaden your scope in the understanding of gardens as art.

 

Throughout the 2018 series, we explore the opportunity to disconnect from reality and surround ourselves with artful gardening. We aim to find the edge of art and gardens, test the new and the bold, and seek peace through nature and art. Take a break from the real world and get lost in the captivating experience of trying something new. From Art on the Edge of Life and Death with bonsai expert Bjorn Bjorholm to Indigo Dyeing with plants and tours of our very own dye garden we look to spark interest and engage audiences. Other topics include the new Art of Blueberries on the Front Range, Herbal Love potions, Carnivorous Plant Terrariums and the Japanese Art of Kokedama. The 2018 Series consists of a series of lectures, hands-on workshops and tours to further your experience.

While she is drawn to many forms of yoga, Meredith³ Hatha vinyasa classes are a well-rounded, playful and intelligent blend of movement and meditation.

Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert

The Denver Botanic Gardens will be hosting its annual Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert to help you relax and get away from all of the holiday stress. Tibetan singing bowls are musical instruments that have been used for thousands of years to promote healing. Bring your yoga mat, a blanket, and your cluttered mind for a relaxing night of sound healing.

 

Denver yoga instructor and sound healer Chris Anne Coviello and her husband Jason Coviello will be performing together in this warming winter concert. The concert will begin with Jason playing his Hang Drum, which is a very rare steel drum that some say sounds like a stringed instrument. Jason’s Hang Drum is tuned to notes that vibrationally correspond to the heart chakra. When you hear this drum, you will be taken on a heart-opening journey.

 

Jason and Chris Anne will then begin playing the Tibetan singing bowls, which are tuned to musical notes that correspond to the different chakras of the body – restoring your balance of energy. Since the body is made up of mostly water, the vibrational effect of the Tibetan singing bowls feels like a full body cellular massage.

 

So come, relax, close your eyes, and drift into a state of calm. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat or blanket so that you may lie down. As your chakras re-align, breathe peace and enter the profound state of physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

 

Price: $18, $15 members

Special Instructions: No children under twelve years of age are permitted in this program. Talking, cell phones, and other distractions are not permitted.
