The Dahlia Shed
Design Topic: Centerpiece
There are so many beautiful varieties that beg to be planted in our flower beds and cherished for years to come! Wouldn't you love to learn how to grow and maintain this beautiful flower while learning which varieties are worth the work?! This 2.5 hour intensive will be co-taught by flower farmer and owner of The Dahlia Shed, Amy Rodrigues. Participants will learn how to plant and maintain late summer and autumn’s favorite bloom, the dahlia.
Attendees will learn first hand what it takes to not only cultivate a successful crop of dahlias, but how to handle fresh cuts in general. While gaining hands on experience in the field, attendees will be able to ask any of their burning questions to help grow their own personal dahlia crop!
Following a field and farm tour, lead by Amy Rodrigues, attendees will gather in The Dahlia Shed's beautiful barn to enjoy a design tutorial. Lead by Mary Kate, owner of The Local Bouquet, each attendee will learn how to arrange their own whimsical, summer centerpiece using The Dahlia Shed dahlias and other seasonal flowers and foliages grown on Amy's farm, making this arrangement 100% locally grown. Come and push your creativity while learning about Mary Kate's mission to source locally for all of her design projects!
Light refreshments will be served throughout the workshop and all materials and supplies will be provided. Each attendee will be able to take home their own centerpiece all grown by The Dahlia Shed.
