Join us for a summer Sunday morning and learn how to create a stunning floral arrangement with flowers you help harvest from our fields. Learn harvest techniques and how to select ideal flowers and greenery for optimal vase life. After exploring our flower fields and choosing your blooms, Suzanne Langlois will teach you techniques to transform them into a dramatic centerpiece. You'll learn about layering in greens and flowers of varying color, scale and shape, and how to hold everything in place. We'll have refreshments featuring ingredients from Flower Hill Farm's vegetable harvests. You'll leave with your gorgeous arrangement in a beautiful pedestal vessel, and plenty of new skills and friends. Class limited to 20 people. Click here to order tickets.
