Class Description:

Join Rita from R&R Secret Farm for a fun evening workshop learning to create your own hand-tied fresh evergreen wreath! After a demonstration, participants will create their own wreath with a mix of fresh & fragrant evergreens and seasonal adornments from R&R’s flower farm in Athens. By the workshop’s end, you’ll have a beautiful wreath creation measuring approximately 14-16” diameter that will be ready to hang on your door.

Participants should bring:

Evergreen sap is sticky, so it’s recommended to bring gloves and wear clothes or an apron you don’t mind getting a little dirty. If you have bypass pruning shears please bring them for your own use, although we will have a few pairs as well.

R&R Secret Farm is an urban flower farm and floral design studio located in Athens, GA. The farm is woman-owned and woman-operated and the long-time dream of Rita O’Brien. We grow a wide assortment of stunning seasonal flowers and delicious vegetables & herbs that are carefully tended to in respect to our bodies and the environment. Beautiful flowers begin with healthy soil & a diverse ecosystem and we are proud to design lush, gorgeous, and unique bouquets and arrangements made with seasonal blooms from our chemical-free fields. Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown, similar to Certified Organic, except we take our commitment to sustainability further by using no chemicals, we minimize our disposable plastic usage, and the farm is 100% solar powered. A major focus of the farm was to create a unique garden-like aesthetic with a wide diversity of shrubs, trees, and perennials that provide both food sources and habitat for our beloved pollinator community. Each year our farm continues to get healthier and more robust and our flowers are all that much more beautiful because of it.
