Our CSA season may be over, but the flowers are still popping! So, to take advantage of this abundance, we decided to create some custom arrangements for our favorite local cafe, Flying Machine Coffee. We harvested the first round of flowers on Sunday, and delivered them to the cafe in the early evening. Most of them are perched on the bar near the shop’s windows. They look so beautiful drenched in sunlight. Holly and I have been stopping in to care for and freshen the bouquets, and we’ve had some wonderful comments from folks about the flowers! It feels so good to receive those little moments of support.
There’s more: These arrangements are for sale! Each bundle is priced at $15, so you can take one home if you fall in love with these flowers! Our little operation is local, chemical-free, and woman operated, so purchasing these special arrangements means choosing those qualities in a product. Special thanks to our friend Josh Lucas for his support with this little collaboration. Flowers and coffee…it’s a good match.
A bit more news to share: We’re teaching a class at Common Ground Food Co-op this weekend! We will be leading Flower Power! on Saturday, August 29, from 2:00 pm until 3:00 pm in the Flatlander Classroom. This workshop will cover: a bit about Delight CSA and our beginnings and journey, the benefits of cut flowers for veggie gardens and pollinators, and the basics of cut flower growth and care. Participants will get to arrange their own flower bundle (just like we do!) from a selection of blooms that will come straight from our farm! This class costs $5 for owners, and $10 for non-owners. We hope to see some folks there! Click here to sign up online!
