After months of procrastinating (I blame the winter), I finally organized the second Keiki-Club meeting. It was an awesome group of florists, plant lovers, and even a few newbies who wanted to learn a thing or two about growing things!
It's still evolving, but my plan as of now is to have a meet up every few months. Everyone attending should bring at least one clipping to trade, some stories / information and a snack (or WINE) to share with the group. After every meeting I will make a zine with the information we learned from the meeting and some. I really like the idea of free-flowing information. You can look up almost anything on Google, but wouldn't you rather use an old family recipe than one you grabbed off allrecipes.com?
So, we learned about propagating Mums, why grass smells when you cut it, what Ethnobotany is and so much more. It was such a pleasure to be around so many fantastic people who all love plants as much as I do. If you are interested in attending the next Keiki-Club meeting, please sign up below. Meetings will be held in Brooklyn (for now)... probably on my roof.
Thanks Michelle for the photos! Of course I didnt take any since I was running around like a decapitated chicken. Keep your eyes peeled for the next Z I N E ! ! !
