We care deeply about supporting places of worship in becoming truly sustainable in both their acquisition of flowers and the techniques and mechanics that they use within their design work.
We know that many churches are now aware that there are more sustainable ways to decorate their beautiful buildings but aren't always aware how to become more sustainable, or have access to, flowers or training to help them do this.
How can Featherstone's help?
1) Learning Resources:
Sustainable Church Flowers (SCF) is a movement which we are very keen to support. There is a fantastic amount of information on the SCF website, with videos, templates, advice and much more available, all for free.
Throughout the year we will upload videos and tutorials featuring sustainable arrangements. Our blog will also keep you informed about what is in season currently and how to find British flowers throughout the year.
2) Free demonstrations
This year we are hoping to run two flower arranging and Q&A sessions, which we will donate our time and flowers to for free. Please sign up to the newsletter using the form below to be kept informed about when and where these will be held.
3) Discounts on our Buckets of Blooms
A discount will be offered to anyone buying flowers for use for church services. We are 100% British flowers meaning no airmiles, or questionable farming practices and ethics. The vast majority of our flowers, from March - October will be grown right here on the farm in Nether Wallop. We only use environmentally friendly practices which support the local biodiversity as much as possible.
