About the presenter:

Helene Barr is a West Tisbury resident, world traveler, and garden writer with over 20 years of floral design experience.

“After undergraduate school at Columbia University, I was offered a job writing questions for Jeopardy or working for the editor-in-chief at The Viking Press. A misstep I see now, I took the job at Viking.

A few years later, I walked into the Darien Gardeners Center and found my truest passion, and that has made all the difference.

I climbed into the huge flower cooler at the back of the shop, four tiered high and 12 feet wide filled with buckets of flowers. I watched the designers in the back room create their magical arrangements. The sea change in my life I had begun.”
