Next month’s flower extravaganza with Amy Merrick is officially SOLD OUT!!! Thank you for all of your enthusiasm, interest and kind words!
In other exciting news, as soon as the flower seasons over, the dahlias are dug and stored, the greenhouses are replanted with pretty spring crops and the field is put to bed for the season, I’m packing my bags and heading back east. First stop is Philly to co-teach a flower growing-arranging-small scale production workshop with Jennie Love of Love N’ Fresh Flowers. We will spend one day on her farm learning the nitty gritty of small scale organic flower farming and the other day arranging with locally grown blooms at a historic mansion in the city. This class is unique in that you can sign up for one or both days depending on your area of interest.
Jenny and I are going to dish out everything we know about making a business thrive on a little plot of land and what’s worked and not along the way. Jennie’s farm is right in the heart of the city and mine’s a good hour out, she’s does mainly wedding and event work and I do a ton of grocery, she’s wicked tech savvy and I’m obsessed with photography, she’s very detail oriented and I’m all about the big picture, so we’re bringing a HUGE range of information and experience!!! Think of us as the country mouse and the city mouse of flowers : )
The workshop is taking place at the end of October so you have plenty of time to make travel arrangements but we’re limiting the number of seats so that students get lots of one- on- one attention, a chance to ask a ton of questions and plenty of hands on help. Nearly half the seats are already spoken for so if you’re on the fence, now’s the time to take the plunge!!!
Detailed info about the Workshop can be found over at The Seasonal Bouquet Project.
I hope to see you there!
