FORAGED FLORA PIONEER AND BLOOMIST COLLABORATOR LOUESA ROEBUCK GATHERS LOCAL, SEASONAL, AND FOUND ELEMENTS TO MAKE INTRINSICALLY BEAUTIFUL, HARMONIOUS ARRANGEMENTS
In Harmony With Nature
If you wouldn’t eat a tomato out of season, why buy sterile blooms, air shipped from thousands of miles away? In co-author and artist Louesa Roebuck’s Foraged Flora: A Year of Gathering and Arranging Wild Plants and Flowers, readers will find a sharp new take on the aesthetics, and politics, of living with flowers and flora. If you eat locally and seasonally, Roebuck hopes you’ll gather your flora — from your garden, your neighbors’ garden, farmers’ markets and anywhere else your day might take you — with the same sense of responsibility and delight.
“THERE’S BEAUTIFUL ABUNDANCE ALL AROUND US – SO WE DON’T HAVE TO BRING BEAUTY IN FROM AWAY”
“WHEN YOU KEEP IT LOCAL AND SEASONAL,
IT’S INTRINSICALLY BEAUTIFUL AND HARMONIOUS”
