Join us for Teresa Sabankaya's demonstration on how to make a posy using local flowers she sources and brings.
Inspired by the Victorian-era language of flowers, a posy is a small, round bouquet of flowers, herbs, and plants meant to convey a message, such as dahlias for gratitude, sunflowers for adoration, or thyme for bravery. These floral poems have become Teresa Sabankaya’s signature. Brides want them for their weddings, but a posy is a lovely gift any time of year, and one that readers can easily put together from their garden or with blooms from their local florist.
Teresa H. Sabankaya, a pioneer of the Slow Flower movement, runs the Bonny Doon Garden Company in Santa Cruz, California. She was featured in Michael Pollan's PBS documentary The Botany of Desire and has appeared on CBS News Sunday Morning. Her work has been featured in Elle magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, and many bridal magazines.
Teresa will be at the event from 9am-12pm. She will be discussing her book from 9:30am-10:00am, giving a posy demonstrations from 10am-10:45am, and signing books for the remainder of the time. Purchase the book to be entered into a drawing to get the posy she makes!
