Featured Speaker and Tour Guide: Meghan DeGroot is a farmer, a teacher, and the owner and operator of Simple Gifts Flower Farm. She has been a longtime supporter of sustainable farming and the “slow food” and “slow flower” movements. After training with Southern Illinois Food Works and Floret Flower Farm, she is in her third season of cut flower production.
Join us for an afternoon of picking flowers and learning about science on the farm! Simple Gifts Flower Farm is located right outside the city limits of Belleville, Illinois, just twenty minutes from downtown St. Louis. Feed Weeko the once wild Mustang horse, throw the ducks a tomato, meet Buck and Winston the livestock guardian dogs, and learn how farm and nature work together to create a field of beautiful flowers. After the tour you will be issued a bucket and a pair of clippers and given plenty of time to pick your own bouquet to take home with you to enjoy.
Hope to see you there!
