Flower Production Field Day at Winding Root Farm

July 11 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

$10 – $20
Join Future Harvest at Winding Root Farm for an in-depth field day on the inner mechanics of running a flower farm operation from production methods to diversifying sales modes.

About the Farm
Nestled in the rolling hills of Rohrersville, MD, Winding Root Farm grows over fifty varieties of specialty cut flowers with a focus on long-lasting, vibrant blooms and native cultivars. We take pride in providing our community with the highest quality flowers and foliage, grown and foraged in harmony with our Appalachian ecosystem.
In addition to bright and cheerful blooms, our bouquets frequently include herbs and carefully foraged foliage, and farmer Caroline enjoys using her background in entomology to identify numerous species of native bees and other insects. Though we are not certified organic, we only use certified organic amendments and implement farming practices that build soil and leave the land healthier than when we arrived.
About the Farmer
Farmer Caroline never thought she’d *actually* be a farmer. She started her career in the Washington, D.C. area as a journalist and communications professional, gardening on a 1/10th acre lot in Hyattsville, MD. Slowly but surely, that little garden expanded, and she began working on urban farms in Washington D.C. and the surrounding suburbs. While managing a vegetable farm in Montgomery County, MD, Caroline obtained her MPS in Applied Entomology from the University of Maryland and her nutrient management license. During Winding Root Farm’s first years, she worked for Future Harvest helping build the sustainable and regenerative farming movement in the mid-Atlantic region.
Snacks and drinks will be provided by our friends at Seven Springs Farm Supply, where members receive 7% off of all products and soil consultations are free!
