Meet our Flower Bouquets!


Flowers are optimistic in their very nature-
staking this year's hard-won resources on next year's fertility. They are also gorgeous, fragrant, and occasionally edible reminders of our role in things, and our dependence on the folks we share space with. Members of Filbert St. Garden have had a lot of time to reflect on this recently- 

the TriVeggie students, garden interns, 
and community gardeners spend every Tuesday afternoon 
cutting flowers and making bouquets for 
Milk and Honey Market on Cathedral St. 
in Baltimore.

The plants we are clipping from- echinacea, boneset, pyeweed, bee balm, goldenrod, and the black-eyed susan, are all plants native to our area. These plants establish themselves as important supporters of local wildlife, and most of them have health benefits for people as well.
Stop by Milk & Honey for a lovely reminder that we're all in this together, and before you leave be sure to try the red goat panini... yum.
