As you tour among the 25,000 roses you many even hear the history of the iconic Julia Child rose and see what was her favorite bench to sit for a spell.
One cannot live on roses alone. Focus & forage with rose companion plants and learn how to design your garden or farm with their symbiosis in mind. Walk the farm and select your favorites to design a garden grown masterpiece. Cap off the workshop experience with a period of reflection and planning.
