In July 2023, about fifteen Wild Ones and guests gathered for a workshop on creating flower arrangements. Everyone brought flowers to share and a vase to use, and after an overview of the mechanics (using frogs, tape, wire, and kenzen to keep the plants in place) and some tips and techniques, each person put together a bouquet to take home.
