In this episode, I talk with Morgan Anderson of The Flori.Culture about a culture of all things flowers, and how flower design can be an art as well as therapy. She offers 3 botanical art/therapy practices that you can do at home to immediately bring the joy of flowers and plants into your life.
Morgan Anderson adores flowers and foliage. Her deep appreciation for nature, keen eye for all things beautiful, and love for education has provided her with a distinctive aesthetic and unique perspective to the field of botanical artistry. Morgan has a Master's degree in Horticulture from Kansas State University and a Ph.D. in Horticulture from Texas A&M University. She has been published in the peer-reviewed academic journal HortTechnology, Postharvest, Cut Flower Quarterly, and the OFA Bulletin for her research. While earning her degrees, she became passionate for teaching while instructing the HORT 210: Concepts of Floral Design course (K-State) and the HORT 203: Floral Design labs (Texas A&M). Her first book, titled Design School is now in its second edition.
