The words “magical” and “enchanting” come to mind when we talk about what a dinner in an orchid greenhouse is like. A select few had the chance to experience such an evening two years ago when the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour was last in Carpinteria. Now, we’re back, and this year’s Field to Vase (F2V) dinner promises to provide the same intoxicating experience for guests.
Join us for an unforgettable spring evening at Gallup & Stribling Orchids in Carpinteria, California, on Thursday, March 30. Just a few miles south of Santa Barbara, Gallup & Stribling Orchids holds a special distinction as one of a handful of orchid farms in the nation and is home to one of the largest plant-tissue culture labs in the U.S., dedicated solely to the propagation of orchids.
Home to many beautiful tropical and cymbidium orchids for over 50 years, father and son duo Case and Alex Van Wingerden have opened their greenhouse doors to F2V guests to experience a true orchid-lovers dream. Gallup & Stribling Orchids is nestled between the Carpinteria foothills and the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
You can see from the photographs that an orchid greenhouse is simply brimming with beauty, but what you can’t tell is how incredible the greenhouse smells, especially on a lovely spring evening.
Don’t wait, like last time, this dinner is sure to sell out quickly and we are absolutely capped at 150 guests. You can save your seat here.
This year, NEW to the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour, we’ll be offering an hour-long VIP Farm Tour, exclusive to 20 guests. This private tour will be led by farm host Alex Van Wingerden who will take you through his Certified American Grown farm.
The VIP Farm Tour is available for purchase at ticket check out.
