One of my favorite farmer florists, Jennie Love (I love her name so much, I always want to say her whole name), has announced her 2014 Master Class series called From Seed to Centerpiece. Jennie says, “It is geared towards experienced florists looking to add or increase the use of locally-grown materials in their design work and learn valuable marketing skills as well to better sell their businesses. I'm hoping this new master class series helps more traditional florists tap into the Farm-to-Centerpiece movement by learning to grow their own or connect more successfully with nearby flower farmers.”
You can see the dates and topics below. From Seed to Centerpiece is a curriculum tailored for experienced floral designers and farmer florists. Equal parts horticulture intensive, business review, and artistic retreat, these topic-specific, concentrated courses enable students to connect more deeply with the natural seasons and tap into their customer’s deep-seated desire to support a creative and authentic business.
All classes will be held at the Love ‘n Fresh Flower Farm and studio (unless otherwise noted). Jennie keeps the class size intimate and feeds you a gourmet seasonal lunch. Sounds like a dream…

And, now, guess what? Jennie has offered to hand-select a collection of seeds for the cutting garden of one lucky Botanical Brouhaha reader! All you have to do is leave a comment below…then wait for the winner to be announced next Wednesday (Jan. 29th). We’ll also let you in on another exciting opportunity next Wednesday, so be sure to meet Jennie and me back here for that!
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
