CSA Flower Shares still available for 2013-Great Mother's Day GIft
Flower Shares are still available for 2013 CSA. Here is a picture of flowers we did for a September wedding.
Yes wedding flowers grown and designed by Willoway Farm are available. The sooner the wedding is booked the more choices of flowers you can get. Only one wedding per weekend -so weekends are filling up.
Please see our website for the Flower Share options. After April 1st 2013 the flower share CSA price goes up. The share is for 17 weeks long and this is our 7th season offering it -so we are pretty well versed in this department.
Our vegetable CSA is full for the drop off locations. But we do have CSA produce shares available for farm pick up on Mondays. The egg share is full also.
We are so excited too, to host a restaurant to farm dinner provided by Braise Restaurant of Milwaukee on August 18th. Only 30 tickets available- planning is in the works-so this is a early heads up-prpobably will be posted on the Braise site within a couple of weeks.Add a comment
Keeping our Flower arrangements green-info on the green foam used in commerical flower arrangements
Hello All- So this past winter because I, Jacqui of Willoway Farm who love s“playing with” and providing organic flowers for people and events thought maybe I should take a flower design class to learn more about what techniques can help me make flowers.
What ended up happening was I learned by my own research and having lovely off time-winter more about commercial flowers and the green foam used in flowers arrangements. As a result I vow to never use the green foam used in commercial flower arrangements. I already new I would not use commercial flowers because of the not sustainable aspect, not fairly paid farmers from South America and of course pesticides and herbicides, preservatives all used in growing and shipping these flowers from South America. And recently I went to the wholesale flower businesses in Milwaukee and yes the manager confirmed all there flowers come from South America.
So I would like to share some information about the green foam used in flower arrangements…which would probably gross you out as much as it did me.
