The American Grown Field to Vase Dinners is a series of intimate, must-attend gatherings that place seasonal, local and sustainable American Grown Flowers at the center of the table where locally grown food, beer and wine is served by a farm-to-table chef. On June 24th, Destiny Hill Farm will host one of these memorable dinners; woodland centerpieces, made by students during the workshop will embellish the tables.

This is a workshop for all abilities and the focus will be on stretching yourself to be open to new ways of thinking about botanical materials.

This workshop offers practical, hands-on experience that will further develop your own skills and increase your confidence to explore outside the box; you will learn the mechanics behind creating textural and detailed designs that will expand the way you think about flowers. Using foliage, bark, berries, seedpods, twigs, mushrooms, herbs and some flowers, we’ll explore how to make woodland bouquets as well as centerpieces. After a demonstration of techniques, you will design your own pieces,using a plethora of flowers and textures from Destiny Hill Farm.
