Friends of the Library - Gustavus Library Associates (GLA) is proud to present a virtual Books in Bloom event!

This year, since we can't gather in person as before, we are very pleased to offer a virtual event, which features Saint Peter business-owner Sara Nett, owner of Sweet Alice Floral and Art. Sara is passionate about environmental sustainability and will be designing via Zoom a bloom that interprets the book Drawdown, by Paul Hawken.  

Introducing Sara Nett, Sweet Alice Floral and Art:

I’ll share with you the way I choose materials and flowers, the impact of refrigeration methods on climate, flower transportation, the positive impact local flower farmers are having all over the world, and how large floral farms are advancing sustainable practices globally.I’ll share my solutions to some of floristry’s most pressing environmental challenges, and how the floristry community as a whole is tackling these problems. I hope you’ll join me!"
