Certified American Grown and Summer Dreams Farm in Oxford, Michigan, to host an immersive Field to Vase dinner amongst the beauty of the hundreds of varieties of dahlias grown on the farm just outside of Detroit. The dinner is a unique experience scheduled for Sunday, September 18, 2022.
Certified American Grown, the host organization, works to promote and represent the interests of America’s cut flower and foliage farming families. Working with the Michael Genovese of Summer Dreams Farm to bring this dinner to life, guests will be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience that is a feast for all of the senses. Known for their beautiful flowers, this special dinner will be a fully immersive experience in the middle of the fields and will include a reception, dinner, design demonstration, farmer talk with Michael Genovese, and talk by lead designer Derek Woodruff of Floral Underground.
Representing American-grown flowers and foliage is critical to ensuring a robust future for our U.S. farms, and equally as important is the ability to highlight other locally grown and produced products to accompany farm-raised flowers. Certified American Grown is excited to announce that they have partnered with the Michigan Wine Collaborative to highlight beautiful wines with the immersive flower dinner. Local wineries participating in the 2022 Field to Vase Dinner at Summer Dreams Farm include:
“We are so honored and pleased to be highlighting the fruits of the labor of both one of our great Michigan flower farms, Summer Dreams Farm, but also of other great locally grown and produced wines,” said Camron King, Certified American Grown CEO & Ambassador. “It is through this effort to showcase local and excellence that we are able to bring the true essence of American Grown and its importance to life in a unique and immersive way. We look forward to our guests enjoying beautiful Michigan wines as well.”
