Floret Workshops

Floret is training a new generation of flower farmers, floral designers and flower lovers on small-scale, high intensity flower production.

Floret Workshops teach you step-by-step how to grow, harvest and sell stunning seasonal blooms. Attracting beginning and experienced flower farmers and florists from around the world, Floret Workshops incorporate technical training, plus time-tested techniques and down-to-earth advice to help you build a thriving flower business. We take you behind the scenes and show you how we produce an unbelievable amount of beauty and abundance on just two tiny acres, sharing all the systems and processes that we’ve developed over many successful years in the flower business.

This course was so empowering and gave me the much-needed tools to be a successful flower farmer.

Learn from Floret

Since 2013, we have trained thousands of aspiring and established flower farmers and floral designers on small-scale flower farming and natural floral design techniques. Widely acclaimed in the press and wildly popular among participants, our on-farm workshops attracted interest from around the world and always sold out fast.

Unable to keep up with the demand for on-farm events, we converted our flower farming training into a convenient video-based format. Information we previously shared at our on-farm workshops is now available via our Mini Courses and our comprehensive six-week Floret Online Workshop, so you can learn from Floret no matter where you live.

Cut Flower Garden Mini Course

Floret Mini Courses feature 3-4 video tutorials that demonstrate some of the techniques we use to grow, harvest and sell high quality cut flowers on a small scale. In our upcoming Fall Mini Course, you’ll learn how to grow specialty tulips, ranunculus, and anemones for early spring blooms, plus how to dig, store, and divide dahlias for an abundance of flowers year after year. Floret’s Mini Courses are offered a few times each year and videos are available for a limited time only. Registration is free.

We know these workshops make a difference because we stay in touch with past attendees, watching them quit their day jobs, go on to open their own shops and design studios, start flower farms, and transform their struggling businesses into thriving ones.

“The Floret Online Workshop inspired me to begin selling flowers this year, when the plan had been to begin selling in about 5 years when I retire from teaching. We started very slowly, but we now have a small but successful flower CSA and farm stand. We’ve sold more flowers than we ever dreamed of, and the Floret course gave me the courage and information I needed to get started.”

“Thanks to the Floret Workshop, I have the right tools, knowledge, and confidence to start and run my flower business. I am now sharing the beauty of flowers with my community. I’m so glad I signed up for the workshop, and I feel so much joy and gratitude in having gained all of this knowledge from the course.”

“The Floret Online Workshop empowered me to pursue my lifelong dream of being a flower farmer. It instilled a confidence in me that I didn’t believe I could achieve. I love this process of adult learning, and am embracing the opportunity. I have been an RN for 30 years. I love my profession and feel extremely grateful that I am now able to focus on my life on our farm.”

“The workshop has impacted me tremendously by allowing me to grow my own flowers that can support my designs. Being able to include flowers from my own plot has brought down my business costs. But the biggest impact has been gaining the confidence to do this at a scale that I choose. I don’t have to have 5 plus acres to grow flowers on to actually impact my business.”
