We are excited to provide another year of flowers to CSA members next growing season! As many of you know, we dramatically expanded the size + scope of our farm this year. We doubled our growing space by renting another half-acre closer to the coast + probably tripled the number of species in our gardens by growing fancy cut flowers for farmers market + CSA customers this year. We have learned so so much at lightning speed: we feel so proud of all that we accomplished this year, and also have so many plans for improving our cutflower production for next year! We are already busy at work planting bulbs for early spring flowers such as daffodils, ranunculus + amemones, ordered ten times more dahlias + heirloom chrysanthemums than last year :) + are seeding flowers like larkspur, Icelandic poppies, nigella + calendula for early spring blooms.
As a gift option for loved ones this holiday season, you can pre-order a flower CSA which begins next spring. This is a beautiful gift of fresh, locally + organically grown + hand-arranged seasonal flowers for ten weeks in the late spring // early summer of 2021. Local pickup in the flower field or downtown Santa Barbara on Tuesday afternoons or at the Ojai Farmers Market on Sundays.
There will still be an option to buy in Spring 2021, but if you choose to make your purchase now, you support us in next spring's growth by helping us to pay for all the bulbs + seeds now! If you select winter purchase of next spring's CSA, you will receive a beautiful hand-illustrated gift card in the mail, as a promise to you or the person whom you are gifting + we will be in touch earliest spring with a firm start date + more information. Please make sure to leave your address in the comments! <3
All flowers grown outdoors in a more-than-organic field kissed by coastal fog + ocean breezes. Supporting local, chemical-free flowers is good for the environment: cut flower-growing can be a very toxic + resource intensive endeavor + as with our medicine gardens we strive to honor the earth, increase biodiversity + use resources sparingly.
