Farm Tour: Morning with the Dahlias - Discussion & Design: On the Farm : 10/2 New London PA

150.00

​We often get asked about visiting the flower farm. While our space is a working farm as well as being our family home..and such is not typically suited to large public events, I do understand wanting to experience the magic and beauty of the farm in bloom as we experience it every day.

Our 2500 dahlias are in peak season in late September through early October, when the blooms are pumping out, as if the plants know that there are a mere few weeks until a killing frost puts them back to sleep for another 8 months.

So with all of this in mind, I've crafted an intimate experience for a small group of attendees​ to come visit the farm, learn all about how we grow our dahlias, roses and other plants, discuss planting, feeding and the like ...and then experience the magic of working with dahlias and other fall blooms during a design session, topping it off with a lovely light lunch from Talulas Table.

Attendees will go home with full hearts, minds and bellies & a beautiful arrangement filled with local blooms.

Keeping this class small, we are able to host it either outdoors or indoors in our sunroom in event of a drizzly date, but if we get a massive storm which would severely hinder our plans, we'll move the date to a TBD rain day.

You are more than welcome to photograph the farm/fields/flowers when here as well if you are so inclined, please just take care with the flowers. Note this is a farm environment, so please dress appropriately.
