Montgomery Botanical Gardens continues its educational series with a class on Creating Fall Floral Arrangements from Nature. The class, to be held Saturday, October 7, 10:00 AM in the Oak Park Gardens’ Wisdom Wood Outdoor Classroom, will be taught by Anna Owen.
Mrs. Owen, a longtime member of Capitol City Master Gardeners, frequently presents classes on finding beautiful arrangement components in the garden or woods and combining them into artistic arrangements. What began as a personal hobby for her artistic fulfillment has grown into a much sought-after skill for training area gardeners.
A decorating class at Auburn University Montgomery fueled Mrs. Owen’s interest in flower arranging especially in creating designs from nature. She has worked on flower arrangement committees at her church for years, arranged flowers for conventions, and attended a flower arranging seminar at the Southeast Flower Show in Atlanta.
The class is a part of a series of Montgomery Botanical Gardens presentations throughout the year. The final class of the 2023 offerings, Bulb Planting/Perennials on November 4, will be taught by Karen Weber.
Fall Floral Arrangements from Nature is free and open to the public. Seating is available in the outdoor classroom. For comfort, participants may consider bringing folding chairs. Water will be provided.
