    An online event with Daniel Mount will be announced soon

    Wednesday, June 3, 2020

    Daniel Mount lives on a small farm in the Snoqualmie Valley and enjoys growing organic veg and fruit and experimenting with flood tolerant plants. He has 30 years of career gardening in PNW and writes for and sits on the editorial board of  the Washington Park Arboretum Bulletin, Pacific Horticulture Magazine. 

    He has a BS-Botany from University of Wisconsin and has traveled the world as a gardener and writer and curator picking up awards and accolades for his garden writing.

    Daniel will introduce us to his love and appreciation of all the irises, with a presentation in the classroom.  Then using the displays of  irises in the Bellevue Botanical Garden he will  educate and entertain us as we walk and talk in the borders.

    Hopefully the weather in June will be good to us but dress accordingly so you don't miss out on the  tour  of the Irises at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.

    Don't miss this very exciting opportunity!

    Debra Prinzing is a regular radio and television guest and has written many books on seasonal, local and sustainable flowers. We are so lucky that she lives in Washington state and has found time to present her PowerPoint, "America Beauty-Bringing the Slow Flowers Movement to your Garden".  She has also generously agreed to donate copies of her books The 50 mile Bouquet and Slow Flowers as door prizes.  Debra will also have books for sale. 

    NPA members $25 / non-members $35

    Following this presentation, Debra is offering a Floral Design Workshop, which is an opportunity to design, and bring home, a lush centerpiece using NW annuals and perennials; there is a separate registration and a separate charge for this inspiring class and we must limit the class to 25 participants.

    Hands-on workshop with a floral design expert!

    Debra Prinzing is  a regular radio and television guest and has written many books on seasonal, local and sustainable flowers. This is a wonderful opportunity to take a hands-on eco-floral design workshop from Debra herself!

    Each attendee will design, and take home, their own lush centerpiece containing a wide array of Northwest-grown annuals, perennials, dahlias, roses and other popular cut flowers, paired with an American-made glass vase. All flowers and vase are included in the cost of the class.

    Debra will discuss how to design with seasonal flowers (including those from your own garden) using environmentally-friendly techniques, as well as how to care for your arrangement and extend its vase life. You will leave inspired to continue cutting and arranging flowers as a gardeners regular practice!

    To keep this a very special opportunity, we have to limit this class size to 25 participants.

    NPA members $85/non members $100 - Includes Flowers and Vase
