THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLD OUT!

WELCOME TO JONIMA FLOWERS!

It’s time to get close to our ROOTS! We are SO thrilled that Jonima Flowers will be hosting our first Australian farm to table 3-day class giving our participants an opportunity to see and experience the foundation of what we do, flower farming!

We will get to spend time with the family and farmers that make it all happen, gather armloads of flowers to create gorgeous arrangements with and eat food grown within a few miles of where we’ll be. These two days will be magical, transformational and inspiring. On day one we will create beautiful floral compotes, followed by European hand-tied bouquet tutorial and hands-on session on day two. On our third day, we will focus on community and self-care as we spend the day together in Bowral.

Jonima Flowers is a 25-acre flower farm located in the beautiful southern highlands of Bowral about 20 mins from the centre of town. 

The family owned farm produces an amazing diversity of flowers, using a mix glasshouse setup, outdoor farming, landscape gardening and natural Australian bush.  

We just can't wait for you to experience the all the floral magic at Jonima Flowers!
