Bloom: The Story of a Rose (Online Poetry Workshop)
Jane Clarke, Poet, and Adam Pyle, USBG Horticulturist

From the soil to the petal, Jane Clarke and Adam Pyle will explore roses in this generative poetry workshop. Participants will hear Jane read garden-inspired poetry and learn from Adam’s presentation as they create their own work. Participants will take inspiration from the USBG’s rose garden or their own surroundings as well as Jane’s writing prompts. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will write and possibly share their own poems.
