Each course includes 6 weeks of self-paced sessions. Registration for both courses is open once a year at the same time, from October 1 to October 10. This allows students to enroll in one or both courses and to take advantage of the special bundle pricing offer.
If you want to become a flower farmer or are already farming and want to grow your business, our courses can help you do it!
Dave and I know what it is like starting a farm from ground zero and working to increase sales, because we’ve been there. We’ve spent the past 20 years learning the business of flower farming from doing it day-in and day-out. After building successful businesses, our focus has shifted to sharing our knowledge with others.
Having both spent decades traveling and speaking to thousands sharing our farming experiences, we are pleased to combine resources to create online courses for audiences beyond conferences. While in-person events are a wonderful way to connect, learn, and network, the benefits of learning from us online are just beginning to be realized.
One of the benefits of our curriculum is that viewing the weekly videos on a self-paced schedule allows you to process the content in a deeper way. It allows for questions to surface with the opportunity to ask it to the instructor on the next weekly live Q & A that takes place while school is in session. Live sessions may be viewed on a private Facebook group or on our provided platform for non-Facebook users.
Another benefit is the ability to use this course as a reference tool in the future. You have unlimited access to the courses after purchase. The weekly sessions are organized in such a way that a month later, a year later or anytime after school has ended, you can find and refer back to a topic to review.
More benefits: all additions and updates we make to the courses in the future will be yours to access as well! Read more about how our online courses work here.
The goal of our courses is to equip those who want to make commercial flower farming a success. If you are looking for a way to start or improve a flower farm or to lay the groundwork of building a larger farm, our courses can guide you.
But I just want to learn how to grow beautiful cut flowers like a farmer!
If you are a serious flower lover who grows your own or who wants to learn how to grow your own, these courses can do just that. We’ve had students learn to grow flowers for charity work, for use at church, or just because they love flowers! You are welcome in this course whether or not you go on to become a commercial flower farmer.
**Note on Registration**
Registration is open from October 1 to October 10, 2019.
After this period we are not adding any new students. The limited opportunity to register is to bring everyone into this course at the same time. This allows us to shepherd the group most effectively and for those in the course to support one another.
