JUST IN TIME FOR MOTHER'S DAY: BLOOM! WITH THE SLOW FLOWERS SOCIETY'S DEB PRINZING
We are now mid-May, halfway through a month of graduations, spring celebrations, and weddings, and Mother’s Day is upon us here in the US this coming weekend.
Something that all of these celebratory kinds of human-marked rituals and events have in common? We so often mark them with the best of our most loved flowers of the season.
With that as our touchstone, I am so pleased to once again be in conversation this week with Deb Prinzing, founder of the Slow Flowers movement here in the U.S. and Canada, and of The Slow Flowers Society, representing the needs, successes, stories, and voices of the floral world in the Slow Flowers Journal, in the weekly Slow Flowers Podcast, and in the annual gathering known as the Slow Flowers Summit, this year happening in Seattle, WA June 26th and 27th.
As yet another facet of her floral-focused advocacy, Deb is co-founder and Editorial Director of Bloom Imprint Books, which identifies, develops, and publishes projects that shine a light on the floral lifestyle, showcasing the stories of floral personalities, creatives, entrepreneurs, farmers, artisans, and makers.
Their newest title, “Furrow and Flour,” by sisters Sarah Kuenzi and Beth Syphers, fits right in with this week’s themes.
I don’t know how she does it all, but I am so pleased she’s back to share with us about it. Enjoy!
