Floral Foraging: Creating Arrangements from Local Sources (150-07-21-18)

Saturday, July 21, 1:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Nina Wiskus and Channing Baker, Co-owners, Bloomfield Floral Designs

It’s the peak of bloom-time in your garden; so ditch those high carbon-footprint exotic flowers from the grocery store in favor of local, more sustainable blooms! Join other floral aficionados for a class on Minnesota cut flowers- from the ground up! Robin Trott, owner and grower at Prairie Garden Farm, will start by discussing her local cut flower business, and share a few tips and tricks for growing your own. Then you will learn how to create spontaneous, innovative arrangements from your own backyard, while working with Channing and Nina of Bloomfield Floral Design, and cut material from Prairie Garden Farm and the Arboretum! Flowers may include amaranthus, bells of Ireland, zinnias, and celosia, but will depend on the season. You will leave with new ideas to enjoy your garden’s blooms, a comprehensive handout, and a vibrant summer table arrangement (~24” long x 18” wide) in a container to keep.
SUGGESTED: gloves, floral snips, and a box to carry the arrangement home in.
