It may still be too early to fully visualize how gorgeous your garden will be in a couple of months, but it’s exactly the right time to sign up for any (or all) of Butterbee Farm’s Flower School offerings. The series of classes begins in June, but space is extremely limited, so early registration is a must. Each class covers a different subject—from “Getting an Early Start” to “Growing Edible Flowers” to “Your Autumn Garden.” Even for experienced gardeners, the folks at Butterbee probably have something to teach about gardening. After all, they’ve been named Baltimore’s Prettiest CSA by the City Paper, and its 2014 CSA is already completely sold out. But that just means you’ll have to grow your own flowers this season—which they’re happy to help you learn how to do.
Butterbee Farm is located in Baltimore County, so it’s not like you’ve got to travel far to get expert advice on cultivating a gorgeous flower garden. But even with a short trip, you get some fresh air and country feel. Each class begins with a tour of the farm, and includes refreshing iced tea and flowers to take home. Classes are held outdoors on picnic blankets, so though highly informative, they’re also simply a lovely way to spend a warm June (or July, or August, or September…) morning. And unlike many large scale growers, Butterbee is committed to growing its flowers “beyond organically,” so the practices you’ll learn are as natural as they come. Your garden will thank you.
Butterbee Farm is located in Pikesville, MD. Flower School classes run from June 14th until October 18th, and reservations are now being accepted. For more information, or to sign up, visit www.butterbeefarm.com.
