Seed Starting Workshops, Floral Design Workshops, Writing Workshops, and More!

We offer a variety of small, intimate workshops here on our Farm. In the spring we offer seed starting workshops. In the spring and summer we offer a number of floral design workshops, as well as writing and reflection workshops offered against the restful, inspiring background of our seasonal local flowers.

In the Fall we offer dahlia workshops, and may occasionally offer more writing workshops, pumpkin painting classes for adults and kids, and more. Check this page regularly to see what offers we have coming up!

Seed Starting:

Join us for an easy peasy seed starting workshop. We’ll come together to start a variety of vegetable and flower seeds to get your garden growing! We’ll discuss whether soil blocking or other methods are right for you and the plants you want to grow. We’ll provide the seeds and supplies for a number of different vegetables and flowers. You’ll leave with 18-24 of your own plants started, and thorough instruction on how to care for your new seedlings and plant them out. It’s everything you need to get your garden started!

Includes light refreshments.

Note: Dress warmly, as this workshop takes place entirely outside. If rain/snow the workshop will be held on the ground floor of our barn but the barn doors will be open for airflow. If the weather is very bad the workshop may be rescheduled for a different day.

Dates: March and April, TBD
Cost: $75 pp
