Join professional flower grower Zoe Hitchner of Front Porch Farm in Healdsburg, and Sky DeMuro of UCSC's Alan Chadwick Garden for a day-long training on establishing a floristry enterprise for your existing farming business, no matter the scale.
Zoe and Sky will lead participants in demonstrations and hands-on activities as we make unique, seasonal arrangements that are farm-fresh and elegant. In addition to floral design techniques including hand-tied bouquets, corsages, and boutonniers, this workshop will also cover the business side of event flowers, equipping participants with tools to run a profitable and professional floristry enterprise.
Although this workshop is geared toward professional flower growers and florists, or those thinking about adding flowers to their farming business, others interested in learning to arrange event flowers are welcome to enroll.
Cost of the workshop is $250 (all supplies included), or $200 for members of the Friends of the UCSC Farm & Garden. Discounts are available for beginning farmers (see contact information, below, to inquire). Space is limited to 30 participants and you'll take home your arrangements. Pre-registration is required. Coffee, tea, and snacks provided. Please bring a picnic lunch.
