The Palmer sisters, owners of The Wild Mother flower studio in Oklahoma City

Today we’re visiting with Lauren Palmer & Leah Palmer, owners of The Wild Mother located in the Arts District, Downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on Kickapoo, Osage, Wichita, & Comanche land. We’re grateful for the opportunity to continue the conversation we began in Episode 70. Today we’re digging a little deeper on some of the ways Lauren and Leah lead The Wild Mother to use their artistry for #morethanjustflowers (as they like to say). Join us as we talk about:

  • the legacy work they feel strongly about carrying on
  • the anti-racism curriculum they developed for discussing systems of injustice in America
  • how they find ways to celebrate, remember, honor, grieve, and educate through their floral medium
  • how they will flower with purpose as collaborators of the Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission to memorialize the 1921 Greenwood Massacre
  • ways we, as floral creatives, can join The Wild Mother in offering healing gestures using flowers
  • GoFundMe for #SendFlowersTo Greenwood
