We are so excited to be hosting a bouquet making workshop on the farm!  October is a really beautiful month in the flower field as the surrounding landscape is awash with yellow from the blooming native Solidago and Maximilian sunflowers, the air is cool (finally!) and typically migrating butterflies are flitting about!

The workshop includes:

  • An in-depth tour hosted by Sam and Dan.  The tour will focus on our sustainability efforts, our vision for the future, an overview of the floral industry (as a whole), and much more! Plenty of time will be allotted for questions.
  • Snacks! Herbal iced tea/water and some kind of baked goodie made by Sam (who used to be a baker)!
  • Sam will lead attendees through her process of creating her “farmer’s bouquets.”  This class is not focusing on arranging in a vase (no vases provided) but rather how to make beautiful hand held bouquets using seasonal flowers!  All materials will be provided.
  • Flowers! You’ll be working with enough flowers to make either one large bouquet, or two smaller ones.
  • Open farm time until 2 pm.  Feel free to bring a picnic and a blanket if you’d like to stay on the farm after the workshop ends.  Please note that we don’t have our BYOB license yet and we kindly ask that your picnic doesn’t contain alcohol.  Thank you for understanding!

Date: Saturday, 10/15 (we will refund your money if it rains, but we will not reschedule)

Time: 10 am until 12 noon, plan to arrive by 9:45ish

Where: 9112 Thaxton Rd Austin, TX 78747

Wear: you MUST wear closed toed shoes, absolutely no exceptions. Thank you for understanding!

Other notes:

  • A lot of farming is out of our control: pests, the weather, etc.  If we don’t have the volume and quality of flowers required to create a memorable workshop experience, we will cancel the event and refund your money.
  • Please note that that we are a working farm and we see rattlesnakes, fire ants, etc on a regular basis.  You will be asked to sign a waiver upon arrival and you assume risk when purchasing your ticket!
  • Please leave your sweet pups at home!
  • Workshops are for those 16 years and older. If you have a baby/newborn, please feel free to email and we can chat!
  • Our parking area is roughly 1/4 mile from the flowers fields.  Please expect to walk about 1/2-3/4 mile total.
  • The restroom is located in our house and will, of course, be available if needed. Please consider using the restroom before arriving to avoid extra walking.
