Join us for this fun and creative maker night, hosted at the Garden’s Cafe! Instructor Conner Parrish will kick the evening off with a brief history of the ancient pressed-flower art form. We’ll get crafty as we create five bookmarks using real pressed flowers from Blossoming Roots Farm and Supply, a local farm in Ashland. The bookmarks you make will be yours to take home and could make a wonderful gift for friends or family this holiday season. Food and drink, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase throughout the workshop at the Garden Cafe.

About 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.
