Floral Lunch Club *Autumn Edition*

October 14th

£28

Re-introducing the floral lunch club to 2024 - a much discussed community event set to launch in 2020... but unfortunately the world had other plans! The lunch club is designed as an informal networking event offering a chance to meet fellow florists and growers in the area. Whether you're looking for a career change and wondering how to start your floristry journey, are more established business looking to meet new freelancers, or a grower looking to meet new customers. We hope to bring people together for a sociable event, and leave you walking away feeling connected, supported, and with a phone full of new contacts.

Of course the fun doesn't just stop there! Also included in the event will be a laid-back floral craft as we collaboratively make a dried flower curtain. Using dried blooms and a needle and string, you can contribute to a larger hanging curtain whilst chatting away! How much you create is down to your own determination and multi-tasking ability!! But there is at least an opportunity for you to take something else away with you by the end of the afternoon.

To top it all there is (of course) a delicious home-cooked healthy vegetarian lunch, hot drinks and cakes. Other dietary requirements and food preferences can also be catered for.

Lessons of a Flower Farmer - with Lois and Anna Brown

Coming Soon

£35

Enjoy some tea, cake, and garden chat in this informal and sociable class with Lois of Little Garden and Anna of Browns Flowers. Each speaking from either-end of the flower farming spectrum, Lois and Anna will cover their biggest highs and lows in the garden, sharing tips, tricks, ideas, and casual discussion about their experience of growing.

Both Lois and Anna are self taught 'get-on-with-it' gardeners, and share many similarities in their energetic approach, but have just as many differences in the scales they work. Anna runs a (very full) 1 acre flower field providing cut flowers for florists from April-October with her small team and family. Working alongside her main colleague Phil - who humbly holds a 30 year career working with plants - Anna's garden approach is often influenced by fairly old-school practices combined with a lot of tried-and-tested experience of running her field for 6 years. 

Lois' experience is more paralleled to an allotment-scale, growing mainly in her mums garden in Gaydon (which you may mooch about during the class). Primarily working as a florist, Lois' focus over the years has been squeezing in a lot with her limited time! Growing a wide variety of low-maintenance plants in smaller quantities, whilst trying to implement no-dig principles into a flower patch which also serves as an ornamental garden.

£35 includes hot drinks, cakes, and free roam of the gardens. Suitable for anyone with an interest in plants and gardens. The focus of discussion will start with our flower-farming experience, but then spread into all aspects of gardening with lots of questions encouraged from all attendees.
