Spring 2016 Farm to Vase Workshop

  • Soul Food Farm

We are so excited to announce our Spring 2016 Farm to Vase Workshop! Over the past few years The Pollen Mill and Soul Food Farm have worked closely on various projects adjoining our businesses as colleagues but more importantly, woman business friends. Our workshops are a result of our love for nature, growing, creating, building our community, and sharing our passion with others. We are joined by the talented Crystal Lynn Photography who will be capturing and providing beautiful images of our fun-filled day on the farm.

Saturday April 16, 2016
at Soul Food Farm | 6046 Pleasants Valley Road, Vacaville, CA

Join us for a full Farm to Vase experience! Spring on the farm is a glorious show of new beginnings and bright hues. It's an exciting time of year to spend a day basking in nature's offerings and stretching your creative minds.

We start our day together with a tour of serene Soul Food Farm. The tour includes a short botanical lesson on flowers and plants grown on the farm as well as foraging and harvesting tactics. Attendees are then set free to harvest blooms and forage materials from the farm grounds. Soul Food Farm grows specialty flowers just waiting to be selected for display at our Farm to Vase Workshops. Following harvest, Kim Mills, owner and designer of The Pollen Mill gives hands-on instruction on creating a natural, garden aesthetic centerpiece for you to take home and enjoy. We then finish the afternoon with a delicious farm-to-table lunch celebration featuring bounty grown and cultivated directly on Soul Food Farm and surrounding local farms. Our meals are paired with beautiful small batch wine produced locally for a leisurely meal with much laughter and wonderful company. In the weeks following the workshop, you will be provided with stunning professional photographs (in digital image format) to commemorate our special day together. These workshops are a truly heart-warming experiences. We can't wait to share a special day on the farm with you!

Workshop Investment: $250 per attendee including all materials, instruction, floral centerpiece for you to take home, professional photographed digital images of our day, gift bag, farm-to-table lunch, and local small batch wine.
