Claire Brown

Claire is a flower farmer and florist who runs ‘Plant Passion’ in the Surrey Hills. The company specialises in growing a wide range of seasonal plants and flowers in a sustainable way; not in glasshouses, but mostly outside on a chalky East Clandon hillside. The plants are suited to the soil, so they can be produced without chemicals, and help nature.

Claire will talk about how she has created the farm over the last eleven years, and how the plants’ biodiversity has helped them to be truly ‘seasonal, scented and sustainable’. You will also gain an insight into how floristry is changing to become more sustainable.

This talk is available face to face at the Institute or online via zoom so make sure you select the correct ticket type.
