Tips to keep your flowers fresh and vibrant after you get them home. I swear by the five tips below for getting a week (or more!) from your fresh flowers.

Save this post for anytime you need a refresher!

I like to take the remaining...

Fall workshops and events

August 10, 2018

I'm deviating from my usual updates about Anchored Roots Farm to tell you about my recent trip to Poland to study agriculture.
