I had never even heard of using glycerin to preserve leaves until David Clark, horticulturist, showed me how.
It’s a simple and inexpensive technique. You can learn how to do it in the video below.
You can learn even more in a series of upcoming workshops led by Clark as part of the 125th anniversary celebration of Blessed Sacrament Church in Buffalo.
The topics will be:
- February 27: Preserving Flowers & Foliage and Making Potpourri. You will learn how to preserve flowers and make potpourri. You will leave with potpourri made in the workshop.
- March 6: Hand-tying Flowers. You will learn the technique of a hand-tied floral bouquet to be displayed in a glass vase.
- March 20, Garden Magic: Spring Blossoms to Summer Blooms. Get tips on garden ecology – managing the systems in a home landscape.
The sessions will be held from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the gymnasium of the Catholic Academy of West Buffalo, 1069 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo. Free parking is available in the school parking lot.
Tickets are being sold as a package for all three sessions, and the cost is $60 for non-parishioners or $40 for parishioners for the package.
Advanced registration is required. For more information or for tickets, contact Michael Pitek at 716-816-0144 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
