Americans are putting a renewed effort into multi-sensory events this year, and Certified American Grown is excited to lead the way with our virtual Field to Vase flower farm experience on April 24. For this event, guests will be whisked away virtually to sunny Southern California onto the 50-acre Ranunculus farm at the iconic Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch.
It’s a totally new approach that opens these iconic evenings to every corner of the country. No plane tickets, no rental cars, no hotel costs. You can immerse yourself in the most spectacular moments nature has to offer in a matter of moments.
Guests will log on and participate in a live virtual program that includes a welcome reception with live music and a tour hosted by farmer Mike A. Mellano of the fully bloomed field, giving a behind-the-scenes tour of all things Ranunculus. Next, you’ll be treated to a fabulous design demonstration with Shawna Yamamoto of Shawna Yamamoto Event Design whose imagination will fill your need for beauty in your everyday life. A sunset serenade will wind down the sure-to-be memorable evening.
It’s a sensory-rich evening, and Certified American Grown provides everything you need in this customizable adventure. The appetizers: a cheese and charcuterie delight from Venissimo Cheese shop in Del Mar, California, that contains three kinds of cheese, three portions of meat, Marcona almonds, dried fruit, and local honey. And don’t forget the wine: your package comes with 375 ml each of a red and white wine locally sourced from small boutique wineries in the Golden State. It’s enough to satisfy two to three people. You’ll also receive a farm-fresh bouquet featuring ranunculus.
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to mingle with top professionals in the floral industry and have your questions answered directly. You are free to join and rejoin as you please throughout the duration of the program as well. This unique Field to Vase evening offers three packages to choose from. Learn more.
Ticket sale proceeds support Certified American Grown, a nonprofit that advocates for and promotes American flower farms and the families that own and operate them.
