The Center For The Arts Presents In Conversation with Angie Tomey Planting Spring Flowers
Sunday, March 28, 2021
4:00 - 5:00pm pst (Online via Zoom)
Angie came to farming after a short career in botany. For her, the world of horticulture is a natural fit. Her business, Little Boy Flowers, does floral design for weddings and special events. On her Nevada County farm, she grows countless varieties of flowers, herbs and shrubs for use in the design work, as part of a CSA program, and to wholesalers in Sacramento. Join us for a conversation about growing fresh cut flowers in your home garden, and getting ready for planting this spring.
ABOUT THE EXPERT:
I am a plant fanatic! All things green and growing inspire me to take notice. I came to farming in 2000 after a short career as a botanist and found the world of horticulture to be a natural fit. My love of the outdoors made the farm a perfect place to settle in. In 2002 I came to Northern California to work for my husband on his organic vegetable farm. Since then my love of farming has grown and so have my flower gardens. Finally in 2010 after having my son, Jude, I started Little Boy Flowers.
There’s nothing I love more than heading out into the fields and forests, neighborhoods and orchards and gathering materials for my designs. We’re fortunate to live in a wild, remote location between two forks of the Yuba river where we commonly see bear, coyote, deer and bobcat. Our home is situated on the farm which allows us to raise our kids living close to the earth and with a deep connection to the land.
I love hard work, beautiful things, cooking delicious food, frolicking in nature and sharing goodness with others.
