Fodor Tree Farms will host flower arranging workshops

To maintain social distancing, they are limiting the workshop to 10 people per day

(WKBN) — With summer in full swing, you’ve probably seen flowers of all kinds popping up everywhere. A local flower farm owner helps you transport these flowers from the garden to your table.

During the summer months, Fodor Tree Farm offers hundreds of flowers to choose from.

With weddings and events canceled this year, some florists have had to get creative to keep busy.

They offer workshops that allow people to come and cut their own flowers and make arrangements to take home.

“It gives us the opportunity to do more with our farm flowers here, like this Roll and Create. It certainly has an effect on us on a large scale, but it gives us time to really come together to reflect more ways to get our flowers into more hands, the hands of our community,” said Tara Fodor.

Typically, workshops are held indoors in tight spaces, where masks should be worn, but they get creative and offer a different option.

This is called relax and conceive. It’s the same concept, except you find a spot on their 11-acre farm.

“Most of the time they bring a mother, daughter or a small group of friends who go out, it’s like a breath of fresh air. They can do something different, feel safe and be a little bit creative,” Foder said.

There are three dates so far for the workshop: July 31, August 6, and August 19. Visitors can arrive between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

To maintain social distancing, they are limiting the workshop to 10 people per day.

The Relaxation and Design workshop costs $59 per person.

There is also another option where you can cut your own flowers. The Cutting Garden Design costs $95 per person.

Vase, flowers and workstation are all provided.

You can reserve a place for these workshops on the Foder Tree Farm website.
