Approaching All Hallow’s Eve/Halloween, Samhain, and Day of the Dead, we are entering into the season of gratitude - running from now through the Winter Solstice & the calendar’s new year. It is a season of gathering, collection, and reflection, and Cultivating Place is in conversation this week with an artist and a green spirit in our garden care world, Louesa Roebuck, about her newest book Punk Ikebana: Reimagining the Art of Floral Design (gathering, gleaning & composing in situ), being published by Cameron books on November 8.

Punk Ikebana: Reimagining the Art of Floral Design (gathering, gleaning & composing in situ)

With Renaissance-reminiscent, still-life-rich photography by Ian Hughes and a poetic introduction by Obi Kauffman, Punk Ikebana is a wild wonder of abundance perspective and grounded gratitude. I invite you to listen in.
