Sunday October 12th: Flower Farmer Bootcamp Part 2: Fall Edition

Time: 9:30am -noon

The second in our series of Flower Farmer Bootcamp classes, in this October edition we’ll continue the crash course in flower farming by giving you a taste of late-season business on the farm. Whether you’re an avid gardener looking to dive a bit deeper into the world of cut flowers, a new farmer wanting to add flowers to the mix, or a dirt-starved city gal just wanting to get outside and learn some new skills, you’ll feel right at home in this class.

You can sign up for both parts of this series or take them individually for the complete skill set.

Part 2 will cover:

A check-in of the crops you saw as babies in summer

Fall care of growing crops: pinching, netting, deadheading

Proper harvesting techniques of a range of cut flowers

How to determine the proper stage of harvest

Analysis of prices and markets for the flowers that are blooming

A quick intro the the fall crops blooming at the farm

Fall garden care - how to clean up and prep the garden for winter

Quick and easy bouquet making! (yours to take home)

This will be a hands-on gardening class. Those who want to dive in and get dirty trying out some new farm skills are given that opportunity, but if you have physical limitations, you’re completely able to just watch the demos from the sidelines.

Class includes instruction, your hand-crafted bouquet to take home, and light refreshments.

* Open to all levels, and we always foster a fun and supportive atmosphere. 

* Light refreshments included.

* All students will take home their one-of-a-kind arrangement, all materials and  supplies included. 

* Class purchases are non-refundable. However if you find you can't make it, please by all means give your spot to a friend!

* Pre-registration required.

* Please dress for the sun and elements, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a full water bottle. We take hydration very seriously :)

* Class must have at least 4 people in order to run. In the rare case that this doesn't happen, we'll let you know with plenty of lead time, and offer either a refund or placement in a similar class when you're available.
