Leslie Bennett will speak on a panel at the SLOW FLOWERS SUMMIT - Seattle, WA Sunday, July 2, 2017, 8:30 AM – 7:00 PM PDT
A one-day conference that Debra Prinzing calls a “TED talk for flower lovers.”
"CHANTAL AIDA GORDON, THEHORTICULT.COM BLOG (Panel Moderator)
The panel examines a critical question: WHERE'S THE DIVERSITY IN FLORAL DESIGN + HORTICULTURE? and showcases the acclaimed author, editor and designer Chantal Aida Gordon. Chantal will be joined by LESLIE BENNETT of Pine House Edible Gardens; RIZ REYES of RHR Horticulture; floral artist NICOLE CORDIER WAHLQUIST (shown above) and others. Now, more than ever, issues of ethnic, gender and cultural inclusion and equality are essential to our profession and we are so honored that these fellow creatives will appear on our stage for a critical conversation."
