What’s A Flower CSA?

A flower CSA works the same way as a vegetable CSA. A member typically joins before the growing season starts. Your membership helps us plan our crops and buy seeds and other supplies for the coming season.  In return, members receive a weekly bouquet of loosely arranged flowers, and the option of an herb bunch.  Flowers are usually picked the same morning as members get their share so you can expect fresh, assorted blooms each week.  As an add-on, members can also include in their share a weekly herb bunch.

What’s Special About Sweet Earth’s Flower CSA?

At Sweet Earth Co. our field flowers and herbs are grown in our gardens naturally without the use of any synthetic chemicals and nurtured using biodiversity and sustainable practices. Flowers are usually picked the same morning as members get their share so you can expect 5-10 days of fresh, assorted blooms each week.

Our weekly bouquets can go right into your vase at home or use them to create your own floral design to brighten up your home or office space. Our assortment of blooms are also a great choice for local restaurants and business looking to add fresh, natural color their locale.

As an add-on, members can also include in their share a weekly herb bunch. Our herbs are also grown sustainably. This Herb Harvest program will include basil, rosemary, thyme, chives, parsley, mint, cilantro, sage, lemongrass, lavender and edible flowers such as nasturtiums.

Workshop: Cultivating Creativity in the Garden – Sat, 9/16/17 @ 10:30am

 

Gardens have a magical way, one may even say sacred way, of healing us, inspiring us and nurturing our body, mind and spirit. This workshop will help you connect with nature in a way that inspires your creativity.

Where you would normally see the garden as a place to grow nourishing food, herbs and flowers; let it also be a place to awaken your senses and nurture your creativity.

 

Everyone has the gift of creativity.  SunRaven: The Home of Slow Medicine provides a safe and relaxed place to spark and nurture your creativity and encourage it to flow. We will explore themes such as rhythms, movement, texture, color and balance in nature and each participant will create mosaic mandala using natural plant materials found in the garden.

Tickets for this event are $30 for adults and $10 for children 12 years and under.

Sweet Earth on the radio!

I had set an intention for myself that during 2017 I would ‘step outside of my comfort zone’.  How I was going to achieve that I did not yet know.  However, just out of the 2017-gate an opportunity presented itself . I was invited by Dr. Michael Finkelstein, the Slow Medicine Doctor, to be a guest on his radio talk show.  A little nerve wracking yes, but fun.  We talked about how gardening feeds and nurtures us — mind, body and soul.  We talked about the SunRaven Garden Co-Op, a holistic and experiential garden and farming experience that I am so excited to be part of, and I had the chance to talk about my flower and herb farm at Sweet Earth.  In particular, how it is part of the slow flowers movement and how it is a natural extension of my work in sustainable gardening and a manifestation of my passion.  Have a listen.  Slow Medicine Radio: Gardening for Health

we are thankful

Sweet Earth Co. has so much to be thankful for this year — exciting projects, gracious clients, amazing support from family, staff and friends, and as always the opportunity to experience the wonder of Mother Earth as we connect with nature.  I love what I do and I’m passionate about sustainable gardening, landscaping, and farming.
In addition to our ongoing mission and projects of designing, maintaining and teaching about sustainable gardens, this year Sweet Earth Co had the opportunity to launch two new ‘slow’ ventures. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to launch our vision of a healing garden co-op at SunRaven Farm, the home of Slow Medicine. This program provided members with a hands-on, working and learning garden experience that nourished the body, mind and soul.  Stay tuned for more to come at SunRaven.
As well this year, Sweet Earth Co started a flower farm offering local, sustainably-grown flowers, which has been  dream come true.  I love flowers — they bring beauty and light into our day and a smile to people’s faces.  Joining the ‘slow flowers’ movement was a no-brainer for me — it was about making a conscious choice to grow and sell local flowers in an earth-friendly way.
This year was all about making dreams come true, fueled by mindful passion and the love and support of those around us.
We have so much to be thankful for this year.
Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving.
