Lunch Break: Plants for the People!

Learn about plant propagation with horticulturist Grace Coburn and take home a few beautiful plant cuttings to grow in your home or office.

This event is inspired by the 2013 MindHandHeart event at MIT, with many plants from Kendall Flower Shop.

Grace Coburn is a horticulturist based in Boston and Cape Cod. She has an extensive background in public horticulture and fine gardening and has lent her green thumb to some of the most beautiful green spaces in Massachusetts including the gardens at the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum. Grace runs a small horticultural design and consulting business, Old Dog Design.
