Be inspired by the botanical treasures of the Pacific Northwest! Begin this textural arrangement with lichen-covered branches and moss. Mix in lush foliage and succulents, ferns and mushrooms, fragrant herbs and small bulb plants, such as crocus, muscari and mini daffodils. Later, replant the bulbs in the garden or containers and enjoy them year after year. Gather ideas to express your creativity and learn to work with natural materials found in your own garden!
Urban Transformations—from bare lot to flourishing business
What if you could turn a derelict lot into a thriving community garden store? Thicket has done just that. In the same way, TogetherFarm is taking thrown out plastic and turning it into beautiful garden boxes for the urban gardener. These are urban transformations. Join Thicket and TogetherFarm for a tour of what used to be a barren gravel lot but is now thriving business with botanical curiosities, vintage finds, and modern craft to inspire life lived in the garden. Get an insider’s look at what it takes to create an urban transformation and bring beauty and benefit to a neighborhood. Walk away with inspiration and a small item to start an urban transformation of your own!
