I'll take you on a tour of our flower farm, where you'll learn about the hundreds of different types of cut flowers we grow here at Alchemy Farm. We'll also wildcraft flowers and plants growing outside of the tended gardens. As we explore the farm, I'll share stories and knowledge about the medicinal qualities of the plants and flowers we find. I'll choose flowers to harvest during our tour so that you'll know how to harvest your own flowers and plants to work with. After the tour we'll head to the Studio, for snacks and refreshments. Afterwards I will demonstrate different techniques and ways of creating Mason Jar Posies - one of my favourite flower pieces to make! We'll talk about choosing colours, fragrances and textures to work with, as well as tips and tricks to working with different flower combinations. We'll also discuss how to make your flowers last longer using ingredients found in your kitchen cupboards. I'll be available for guidance as you create your own Mason Jar Posy. Your Posy will fit in your car cupholder and is easy to take with you!
I'm an award-winning environmental artist, flower farmer, designer and oracle deck creator. We grow hundreds of different flowers at Alchemy Farm. I started growing flowers in response to finding out that the flowers I was buying every week were grown tens of thousands of miles from me, and are loaded with pesticides. I decided to become part of the change I want to see in the world, and that I talk about in my art practice. I enjoy giving tours of the farm and gardens during workshops and love sharing detailed information about flowers: how to grow them, harvest them and design with them. We are on CBCs top 10 list of flower farms to visit across Canada—and the only flower farm where you can listen to the music of flowers—really!
