Our five floral division classes focus on "Symbiosis: Harmony in Nature," the Garden's 2022 theme, which includes symbiosis-inspired exhibits, events and family activities.
Saturday will include a Ikebana demonstration from 1:15-2:30 p.m. in the Center House, led by Kaye Vosburgh, who holds the highest rank, Riji, in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana and is an accredited master judge and a flower show school design and procedure instructor for judges in the National Garden Clubs, Inc. Vosburgh will also hold a book-signing.
Saturday will be capped off with a special — and fun — floral arrangement "Challenge Class" at 3 p.m., featuring State Representative William "Smitty" Pignatelli, of Lenox; Tom Romero, of Lenox, who retired from Berkshire Medical Center as senior vice president and remains board chairman of assessors and president of UNICO in Pittsfield; Matt Tannenbaum, the owner of The Bookstore and Get Lit Wine Bar, in Lenox; Chris Ferrero, a gardening speaker, writer and consultant, from Stockbridge; Chis Masiero, owner of Guido’s; and Linda O’Connell, of Stockbridge, an avid gardener and a Trustee of Berkshire Botanical Garden.
