A not-too-sweaty August afternoon was the perfect time for Garde Rose, a flower exchange led by the aproned Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay and Mark Clintberg. Guests were asked to bring a single flower to the garden, be it a pedestrian rose or sultry orchid. The artists then catalogued the floral offering and set it on its own space amongst the other guest flowers. Guests were treated to delicious summery beverages, made with clever arrangements or floral based ingredients. When a guest left, the artists bid farewell to them with a flower from another guest–the exchange noted in the artists’ ledger. We welcome this and any creative uses of the garden as community gathering space.
