CWA Wreath Making Workshop
Our kind of welcome to the Holiday Season, as the California Women for Agriculture – San Diego Chapter (CWA) brought good cheer to the farm on a recent Saturday. Clear skies and perfectly crisp temperatures greeted guests as they enjoyed a wreath making workshop, along with a tour of the nursery, a peak in the packing house and some tasty Mexican snacks. Our favorite flower farmer demonstrated the art of wreath making, while participants merrily contemplated what flowers and foliage they would select for their special wreath.
Once everyone gathered their favorite ingredients they created twelve small bouquets that were arranged and placed on a wreath frame and finally, clamped into place.
The workshop concluded with a viewing of 20 unique and festive wreaths, complete with holiday tunes and special greetings from several of our farm friends. Guests departed with a wreath in one arm and protea bouquet in the other.
