Spend an afternoon or evening with a botanical artist creating your own slice of paradise, a vertical garden. Taste plant powered foods, sip a glass of wine, and craft a living work of art.
Benefiting Tipping Point
Create a Vertical Garden
Throw a private vertical garden party. Dine on local plant powered foods and then create a living work of art for your home or office.
In this living craft experience, you and your guests will start with lunch or dinner at a Chicago restaurant based on your tastes. Plant powered vegan? Think Native Foods. Or Mana Food Bar for the veggie clients. If you want something more hearty, they'll bring in tasty dishes from their favorite gastropub.
Once you dine on local flavors, the plant education will begin. You’ll learn about the popular Tillandsia, or air plants, and how to care for these houseplant wonders that don't need soil. Then you'll have step-by-step guidance from a botanical artist to create your own vertical garden masterpiece to take home.
This is not your typical arts and crafts project. You'll get to choose your own cork bark for just the right project base. Pick out your favorite plants from a huge selection of over 20 species they'll have on hand along with moss accents. Then get one-on-one design help to make a slice of paradise you're excited to hang in your home or office, and admire long after the party.
