The Workshop Series

Creating Opportunities

We dreamed of a way to bring our floral industry relationships and skills together to create opportunities for our neighbors. First, we opened the Botanical Brouhaha - Garden Style shop, and soon we realized we could accomplish even more with the help of industry friends. Holly Chapple and Hitomi Gilliam, AIFD partnered with us to launch the Botanical Brouhaha Garden Style Workshop Series November 5-6, 2018. With their help, we were able to raise funds to address needs in our local community. As word of the Garden Style project spread, additional flower friends and renowned speakers began stepping up to help. In April of 2019, Françoise Weeks and Jennifer Ederer will join us for the next workshop in the BB Garden Style Workshop Series.   Find out more about the creation of the Garden Style shop. 


Schedule of Events

Workshop Details

Get ready for a new workshop experience. By simply purchasing a ticket, you're partnering with us to make a difference in the lives of local families. The proceeds from the workshop will provide housing & training opportunities for the local community. And, because we created this workshop series to provide opportunities for our neighbors, we're all about the relationships behind the designs. Sure, we want you to learn new skills and tips of the trade from our world-renowned instructors, but we also want you to meet them and know them as people. We want you to ask questions - the deep ones you've been wondering. We'll provide time throughout the day intended for making connections, sharing stories and finding encouragement. Together, we will all make a difference.
