Event

Grains to Wreaths
Local flower grower and floral artist extraordinaire Michelle Elston will lead workshop participants through the process of wreath making using local grains like rye, sorghum and wheat.  This hands-on opportunity will allow each participant to make a dried wreath that captures the natural attributes of autumn.

Fee: $16 PASA or DC Farm CSA member/$18 non-member (includes wreath making supplies)

"I have always pictured myself as a flower farmer. It's this vision of a life of simplicity, hard work, and natural beauty that propels me. I hope that I can inspire you to see some of the good, alive, and beautiful in our world."

- Michelle Elston, Roots, Owner and Farmer
