LET’S CELEBRATE OUR FLORAL FARMS

Have you ever wondered where the beautiful flowers and foliage in your bouquet come from? Do you ever close your eyes and been transported to another place or time by the sweet scent of a garden rose or the intoxicating fragrance of a lily ? Can you imagine yourself standing in a field of flowers?

 Our unique events connect all aspects of the floral industry from farmer, to wholesaler, to retailer to consumer through influential & magical experiences.   Whether you join us for an intimate Field to Vase dinner on the farm or witness the versatility of our flowers in action at the prestigious Sylvia Cup Design Competition, our events showcase the many stories that make up American Grown.

Check out the upcoming events down below. To stay up to date as we share more information, please make sure to sign up for our emails to be kept up to date.
