This spring Mayesh hosted their first international workshop in Quito, Ecuador at the Hacienda Cusin. There were over 20 attendees and three instructors, and over the course of a week there were two full days of design, two flower farm tours and they explored the city of Old Town Quito.
After two full days of design demonstrations, there was an opportunity to visit two flower farms local to the Quito area. First stop was Green Rose, grower of over 100 rose varieties. Following a tour through GreenRose's greenhouses, the participants headed to ValleFlor. Here they saw many of their varietals of which the delphinium was the star. After the second farm tour, Jose Javier and his wife Estefania, owners of Green Rose, welcomed the guests into their beautiful home. Here they were treated to a performance of their show horse then given the opportunity to ride the horses themselves. They finished the night with a dinner full of Ecuadorian dishes.
