2018 Farm Workshops

So, in my last post, I announced my intention to post twice a month. That was in May. It’s now the end of July. In the past, I would likely be unkind to myself about not meeting my own expectations. Now I simply see this as something that happens regularly in a life beset by all sorts of interruptions to our plans, and I’m feeling okay about missing the original mark. Nevertheless, I do want to apologize if you have been missing my posts.

Perhaps in the fall/winter I will find more time to wax lyrical and philosophical about the farm and gardening in general, but this post is simply practical. I wanted to announce the farm’s workshop schedule. You’ll find the details below, but if you need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email at Becky@Bloomsburylanefarm.com. I have started the process of drying materials for the very popular Dried Floral Wreath workshops, and I am so excited about the goodies you’ll get to choose from.

I will post all of these workshops on the online shop in one week, but I do need to give my bouquet members a head start in signing up in the meantime. Please do pay close attention to the locations, as we are spending one morning at Junk Mama’s in Fayetteville.

Also, let me simply call everyone’s attention to the fact that workshops filled up within a day or two last year, so stay on your toes! I added a second Dried Floral Wreath workshop this year to account for how quickly it filled up last year and to (hopefully) eliminate the waiting list that I had to keep.
