Celebrating American Grown Flowers in Alaska

Overlooking Kachemak Bay on Alaskaís Kenai Peninsula, the Homer Spit, with at least 5 different glaciers shimmering in the sunlight from across the bay, guests of the most recent American Grown Field to Vase Dinner enjoyed a floral filled evening of hope and grandeur.
