Join us on Mother’s Day for an adult (18+) mother-daughter workshop with Designer Conner Parrish of Blossoming Roots Flower Farm! Mother-daughter pairs will have the chance to create a three-dimensional centerpiece with dried flowers that can be used as home decor or a statement wreath. All of the floral materials used in class are locally grown by the instructor at his organic flower farm in Ashland with pollinators in mind. Mother-daughter pairs will have the option upon registration to sign up to make one centerpiece together, or individually create two separate centerpieces while sitting together at the workshop.

Conner ParrishAbout the Instructor

Conner Parrish owns Blossoming Roots Farm and Supply in Ashland, Virginia. Blossoming Roots is a local cut flower farm with a mission to protect and nurture the environment around us! Conner has always been a nature lover and started down this path after the sudden loss of his father at an early age. He quickly realized nature is what grounded him and after becoming a beekeeper in college, he began to understand the therapeutic benefits it cultivated within him. Flower farming naturally entered the picture after he was planting them to feed his bees. Fast forward to today and he owns a cut flower farm that donates a portion of profit to pollinator conservation each month! He is finally living the dream and helping the world be a better place.
