A workshop and luncheon at California University’s Southpointe Center aims to replenish participants’ spirits while boosting a scholarship fund.

How Does Your Garden Grow? will be presented from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. June 3 at the Cal U Southpointe Center, 135 Technology Drive, Canonsburg, Pa.

The speaker is artist Nan Keenan, who uses the 19th-century art of florigraphy to honor individuals and families by illustrating personality traits in the Victorian “language of flowers.”

Keenan has been invited to exhibit her work at the Smithsonian Institution, and her paintings have been commissioned to honor former first ladies, Olympic athletes and victims of national tragedies, as well as beloved family members and friends.

Keenan also works with teachers, parents, caregivers and clergy to “cultivate interior gardens that bloom in love, celebrate individual worth, encourage learning from one another, and cultivate peace and chesed, or active kindness.”

Cost for the program is $25. Ticket includes the workshop, lunch and a flower. Proceeds benefit the Cal U Southpointe Student Scholarship Fund.

Seating is limited, and pre-registration is required.

Deadline for reservations is May 23.
