Jardin de Buis, a world-class, formal-garden estate in Hunterdon County, will host a three-day, intensive Sustainable Flowers Project workshop that takes green thumbers from soil to vase. 

The September 18–21 affair will be facilitated by Sustainable Floristry Network ambassadors Becky Feasby and TJ McGrath.

“We will create pure magic with locally sourced, seasonal blooms as we discuss the importance of soil health, regenerative growing practices, sustainable design mechanics and the healing power of flowers,” says McGrath, a Plainfield resident. Other leading floral designers and authors will also explore groundbreaking techniques and inspire blossoming relationships among growers, designers and flower sellers.  

The hands-on program will happen in Califon on the 35-acre grounds of Jardin de Buis, an 18th-century dairy farm transformed into a private residence, where landscape designers and soil experts Andrea Filippone and Eric Fleisher have established and maintain vast, sustainable gardens. 

The fee for three days of study with industry masters is $2,800. Tuition includes catered, on-site breakfasts, lunches and a sit-down dinner, as well as all flowers and materials necessary for the zero-waste workshop. For more registration information, visit TJ’s McGrath’s website.
