OFRENDAS FLORALES

Info
Sep 5, 2014 – Sep 12, 2014
In the Window

In a small indigenous community in Ecuador called Saraguro, flower wreaths are made every Sunday on the steps of the church at the center of town. Though Ecuador is one of the leaders in the global export floral market, the home-grown flowers used to make the Saraguran wreaths are made as an offering to the community itself, to simply be enjoyed as an object of beauty and gratitude.

Broadturn Farm in Scarborough grows flowers for local markets alongside their organic vegetable plots. Their offering of a flower wreath is made in the same spirit of giving to Portland, Maine. The farmers from Broadturn will construct the arrangement on September’s First Friday Art Walk and it will be on display in our storefront window for as long as the ephemeral nature of the flowers allows.
