Our favourite day of the year (well, one of them!) is almost here. Just four sleeps to go now until our open morning and we’re looking forward to seeing you!
We’ll be open this Saturday 28 September from 10 until 1. It’s free to come in and you can wander among our cutting beds, enjoy an expert tour with Jo and cut your own flowers to take home, accompanied by the rousing A Capella harmonies of the Frampton Shantymen.
There will be copious amounts of tea and cake, plants for sale, and ethical gifts and produce on offer from Step and Stone, Wendy Calder Ceramics, Lucy Crowley Wellbeing Advisor, Hives and Herbals, These Two Hands, Clevedon Bag Company and Handpainted by Kitty.
As an operational farming site it isn’t practical for us to be open to the public on our normal working days, so we love this opportunity to show you what we do. We love talking about being a social enterprise and the achievements of our trainees, each of whom is living with mental health challenges or learning difficulties.
We’re also passionate about organic growing and British flowers. Our open morning is a chance to show you how cut flowers can be grown and enjoyed ethically. As a Soil Association-certified organic cut flower grower and floristry business, we plan our open morning to take place during Organic September, the Soil Association’s month-long awareness campaign promoting the many benefits of certified organic growing, which is just as important for non-food products.
Our neighbouring farmer has kindly lent us the field next to our entrance for parking – you can find us on Latteridge Hill, Latteridge, South Gloucestershire BS37 9TS. Come and see us on our favourite day of the year!
