Follow Elisabeth Cary’s journey as she has moved from avid home gardener to micro-flower farmer. In this workshop, she will consider how to maintain a small and manageable garden while maximizing floral production. Elisabeth will share her planting scheme, germination schedules, horticultural sources, pest management, harvesting, and flower conditioning. Some unique “give-aways” will be shared.

Elisabeth Cary, former director of education at Berkshire Botanical Garden for 18 years, is now micro-flower farming in the Southern Berkshires with lessons learned over the past 5 years that will be useful to interested gardeners.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
