Civic Disability Services
Time: 11:00am - 12:00pm, Thursday 14 February | NSW Seniors Festival Expo Workshop Zone
Civic Disability Services’ Ring O’Roses Program connects individuals with disability to older members of our community.
The program trains people with disability to learn new skills in floristry by upcycling leftover flowers from events and venues into attractive bunches. The new posies are then personally delivered to local seniors. Along with a cuppa and a chat – it spreads a whole bunch of happiness to all.
Use your creative skills to join in this interactive workshop and help the team to upcycle donated flowers into new posies.
Flowers are donated by venues, individuals and organisations. They are delighted that their blooms continue to spread joy after the wedding, birthday or corporate event is over.
Ring O’Roses teaches new skills while recycling green waste. It also offers potentially isolated people a chance to engage in creative activities and form meaningful relationships.
Ring O’Roses is supported by the NSW Government Family & Community Services Liveable Communities Grants Program.
