Anthropologie goes garden-centric for Earth Day with a bevy of greenhouse accessories and a potting workshop tomorrow

21 April 2010

Anthropologie is doing its part to promote Earth Day with a bevy of garden focused products and free workshops in celebration of the green thumbs amongst us. To promote the importance of planting and urban gardening, it has stocked its windows with garden-centric tools of the trade. For the fashionable gardener, there are floral print gloves designed by Brit textiles wiz Celia Birtwell. And those wanting to read up on the subject can turn to author Richard Reynolds’ coffee table tome ($25.99) all about “guerrilla gardening” (the act of illicitly gardening abandoned lands if you’ve never heard the phrase). But for those not afraid to get their hands dirty, there is always satchels of gumball-sized wildflower seed bombs that can be tossed into your garden. Specific to your region, you can opt for the West Coast, Mid-West or stick to the East Coast blend, which is filled with baby blue eyes, baby’s breath, and blue flax. But don’t forget Earth Day itself! Anthropologie’s Rockefeller Center outpost is playing host to an interactive workshop with local farmer Annie Novak, co-founder of the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Greenpoint. Reserve a spot for tomorrow’s presentation and you’ll get to do some hands-on potting whilst sipping organic refreshments. Make an RSVP by calling the store at 212.246.0386.

When: April 22 from 3PM-7PM
Where: 50 Rockefeller Center

Draughtsman Gardening Gloves, $20
On Guerrilla Gardening, $25.99
