What You’ll Do
If Dustin Faddis hears a person cough or sneeze, he might make an unexpected suggestion: consider putting a few plants around the house or office. The product designer has spent more than five years studying succulents and how their air-purifying abilities can lead to numerous health benefits. He covers these topics and more during this workshop, before helping everyone plant and care for succulents of their own.
Turn One Plant Into Many
After an overview on air-purifying succulents, you’ll take a one-gallon succulent and repot it into two or three different pots.
What You Take Home
You’ll leave with your potted succulents, a fact-packed handout, plant care notes, and a suggested list of air-purifying plants for health benefits such as reduced eye irritation.
Bring the Whole Family
Chances are, local non-profit Traveling Stories will have its reading tent set up with plenty of books for kids. If not, there’s always an outdoor ping-pong table and the shops of Flower Hill.
Product Designer and Succulent Advocate
Dustin Faddis has been able to breathe a lot deeper over the last few years with the help of plants. In 2009, after a conversation with a friend, he dove head first into the world of succulents while working at a landscape design center and learning everything he could about the plants’ potential health benefits, such as clearer air. His artistic work as a product designer now reflects his passion for succulents; he creates hardwood and concrete planters, along with other sculptures for sale at his online and physical stores.
