Special Half Day Dahlia Workshop

The dahlias sleep in the empty silence. Wait for the early owl. – T.S. Eliot

Calling all dahlia lovers! Flower farmers faced lots of challenges this growing season – there was heat, there was rain. Dahlias, however, known for their tenacity, may be late – but they are here! As always, these gorgeous blooms are worth the wait – their colors are perfect accent to the hastening fall accompanying deep blue skies, and hints of the foliage still to come.

You asked and we listened. Bear Creek Farm is delighted to hold our first ever ½ day dahlia workshop on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

Q & A

Q: I want to bring my camera to record videos so I can rewatch them later. Is that ok?
A: So sorry but video recording of any kind is strictly prohibited during our workshop.

Q: What is the Cancellation and Refund Policy?
A: Just like a client booking a wedding or another event, we base our business on booked events and plan accordingly. With that, this workshop is not cancellable, non-transferable and non-refundable. While we understand that life happens sometimes, please verify that you can 100% attend the workshop before you register. Check all travel aspects. We will not be able to refund you for any monies paid at any point, for any reason. Our course involves staffing, vendors, rentals, product, and so many other elements that are based on a “by attendant” basis. We are charged based on the number of people that register and we are also unable to make cancellations with said vendors on our end, so this course is non-refundable. 

All of the employees at Bear Creek Farm have chosen to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
