How was your Easter weekend? I hope you enjoyed it and managed to do something nice in the lovely Spring weather! I spent the weekend doing some crafty and DIY jobs that have been on my list for a long time, baking and going for a walk with friends.
I hope you enjoy today’s newsletter.
WHAT CAN I SHARE WITH YOU TODAY?

If you would like to take part in a FREE flower arranging workshop over Zoom, please contact me (Leah) on email@example.com to book your space.
There is one more space left on the workshop happening this Wednesday 7th April, 3pm-4.30pm!
Last week’s workshop was wonderful, with Maggie teaching the class how to make a spring posy! This week, Maggie will be showing us how to create another lovely flower arrangement to decorate your home with.
Please note that you will need to visit The Phoenix Garden to collect materials for the workshop so please bear this in mind if registering your interest. Ideally, you will live within walking distance of The Phoenix Garden to reduce the need to use public transport.
The Phoenix Garden will be holding more workshops and classes face-to-face once community centres are able to re-open. For more information, please sign up to The Phoenix Garden’s mailing list HERE.

Around the World in 80 Plants
Join the Linnean Society for a FREE online event to celebrate the publication of ‘Around the World in 80 Plants’
We are thrilled to host Jonathan Drori for our Nature Reader series!
Coinciding with the publication of Around the World in 80 Plants, join us on a profusely illustrated journey celebrating plant science and revealing how the traits that plants have evolved have intricately entwined them with our own history, culture and folklore. Who knew that there was a time when pineapples were hired out for parties, or that there are fruit whose ripening responds to sound, or why bananas are perfect for nightclubs? There are poignant stories too, and the downright bizarre, such as trees that seek and sever telephone wires, and the unflinching quest for aphrodisiacs that has changed the course of history.
Jonathan Drori CBE FLS is a Trustee of The Eden Project and Cambridge University Botanic Garden, and Honorary Professor at the Birmingham Institute for Forest Research. He spent nine years on the Boards of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and the Woodland Trust, and is an Ambassador for the WWF. In a previous life he was a documentary film-maker with the BBC.
