Farmer's New Year Professional Workshop, August 1

What is Farmer's New Year? It's the time of year when we begin preparing for the following calendar year.

This workshop for professionals and aspiring professionals and enthusiastic hobbyists combines a tour of our flower farm with several informational packets, an extensive Q&A session, and social time with like-minded folks.

This is not a floral design workshop.
