Missoula Floral Design || Earth-Friendly Floral Design Workshop on February 11th at MUD
Earth Within is a new Eco- conscious Floral Design business based in Missoula, Montana that hopes to offer the local community a socially sustainable and earth-friendly alternative to flower sourcing through artful arrangements and education. Our work will benefit local farmers in the community as a market for their flowers and encourage more farmers to grow flowers. Additionally, the education component of our business hopes to shift our main-stream flower culture from one that purchases flowers from un-known sources that are often out of season and produced in S. America to one that values local, seasonal varieties.
Here in Missoula, Montana; there is a active community behind environmental awareness and a thriving local food system. Everywhere you turn there’s a environmental campaign or event taking place that reflects on what we can do as a community to change our current system that’s jeopardizing our natural habitat and community economy. MUD is organization that fits into this category but in more of a hands on, grassroots-oriented manner similar to Earth Within. MUD exists to create a replicable model of urban sustainable living through education, demonstration, and celebration in the Missoula community. We are partnering to offer a Earth-Friendly Floral Design Winter Workshop on February 11th at from 5:30-7PM at the ButterCup Cafe and Market. In this workshop participants will…
- Get acquainted with the dimensions of ecologically principled floral design
- Explore resilient flora-culture v. mainstream mass market flora-businesses
