Join us on our beloved home turf of New York City and the Hudson Valley for New York's inaugural L.E.A.F Flower Show. Celebrate New York's energy and rich floral history and help us transform the Meatpacking District into a floral ode to the city.
We'll start in the lush Hudson Valley to appreciate local cut flower farms, fresh produce and the magical light celebrated by artists for centuries. We'll then move to the heart of Manhattan to participate in New York Flower Week by shopping the flower market and assisting on a floral installation.
We'll guide you through foraging in Central Park, tasting menus at the best eateries and the city's renowned art and design scene.
As with all our Botanical Journeys, we will blend gardens and life with good friends, hands on experiences and the best local food.
