PURSUE YOUR PASSION

TRAINING & SUPPORT FOR A NEW GENERATION OF FLOWER GROWERS

Since hosting our very first on-farm workshop in 2012, Floret has offered scholarships to deserving flower lovers to attend our training tuition-free. Past scholarship recipients have taken what they learned from Floret to create or expand successful flower businesses across the globe. Floret scholarships are a small way of paying forward the generosity and support we’ve received over the years.

PAYING IT FORWARD

Years ago, I started Floret with a $1,000 loan from my mom, a used wheelbarrow, a shovel, a few dahlia tubers, and a head full of dreams. I spent the first few years learning how to grow flowers largely through trial and error, as I never felt like I was in a place that I could invest in my education. My future changed the day I got an email from one of my floral heroes, offering me a slot at an upcoming workshop. Having the opportunity to have someone take me under their wing and mentor me as I tried to follow my heart was a turning point for me. I vowed that if I ever had a chance to pay it forward in the future I would.

FLORET SCHOLARSHIP WINNER STORIES

TRAINING A NEW GENERATION OF SMALL-SCALE FLOWER GROWERS

KYLIE’S STORY

Kylie Lewis took on the task of raising her younger sister while also navigating classes as a 21-year-old college student. “Becoming her guardian made me want to be my best self,” she shared. “Farming expedited the journey. Farming tenders strength, determination, and hope.”

Kylie spent the next decade working as a field hand and manager at organic vegetable farms in Oregon and Washington while dreaming of growing flowers on her own land. Kylie received a Floret Scholarship, and after completing the Floret Online Workshop in 2020, she now grows flowers for weddings, special events, and bouquet subscriptions on a ¼-acre plot.
