Come learn the secret language of plants and become a master at identifying the flora around you! This intimate hands-on workshop will start by teaching you the principles of structural botany enabling you to learn to recognize leaf morphology and types. We will be using a reference guide I created specifically for this workshop which you get to keep. I will share numerous leaf samples of various types of leafs to help you understand these subtle differences between plants so you can have a keen understanding of what makes them unique and enable you to build upon your plant knowledge. Our morning will end with a fun botanical printing exercise where you will create your own artistic nature prints using native foliage gathered and identified at the Well of Ancient Mysteries.
I'm the founder of Tropical Alchemy, a landscape and urban design studio located in the heart of Calle Ocho in Little Havana (Miami, FL). My passion for tropical landscapes and teaching people the secret language of plants inspired me to share my specialized knowledge with others. I have over 12 years of experience working with plants and have designed gardens + public spaces in over 15 different tropical countries around the world. I have a masters degree in Landscape Architecture + Environmental + Urban design from Florida International University. I've also worked as a naturalist for Miami Dade College teaching children about native ecology and the unique plant communities in South Florida.
You will receive a complimentary guide I've created specially for this workshop - Tropical Alchemy Botanical Plant…
