The American Grown Field To Vase Dinner Tour will be coming to FernTrust in Seville, Florida on Saturday, November 18th. Fern Trust is a cooperative of 13 family farms encompassing a combined 350 acres growing a variety of ferns, grasses and foliage plants for the fresh-cut floral market, including tree fern, leatherleaf, aspidistra and more. Florida’s blend of warm/cold temperatures nurture dark color, lush plants and textural interest, and is the perfect climate for cultivating gorgeous greens.
The table is set and you’re invited to an artisan dinner of a lifetime – where you’ll take your seat among the exquisite fields of America’s most stunning flower and foliage farms.
The 2017 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour is a series of elegant, intimate pop-up gatherings, located on seven flower and foliage farms across the country. Seasonal, local and sustainable blooming flowers dazzle on white-linen tables elegantly dressed by celebrity floral designers. Scrumptious meals are prepared by farm-to-table chefs.
At each unique meal and through accompanying farm tours and design demonstrations, guests who attend from all areas of the country will make a personal connection between flowers and agriculture as part of America’s floral landscape. They will experience the age-old art and science of flower farming enjoying platters of delicious, seasonal and locally-grown fare through four courses, including specialty desserts accompanied by vintage wines, micro-brewed beers and floral-inspired cocktails.
The dinner will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., with accompanying workshops and farm tours. Attendees will leave with beautiful memories, gifts from the tour’s generous sponsors, and a greater understanding of why fresh, Certified American Grown Flowers in the home – and on the table – are important to health, well-being, local economies and good conversation.
