I’ve been subbing a lot at Southview for their Horticulture teacher this year because it’s the class I taught for my first 2 years of teaching and so I’m the perfect option for a sub! Now that I’m not teaching anymore I’ve really been enjoying teaching when I want to! While I’ve been subbing there has been a lot of interest in flowers. I’ve been helping to train the Floriculture team which will compete at Districts and States this year in FFA’s Floriculture Career Development Event.
They will take a general knowledge written exam, judge placing classes, identify cut flowers, foliages, flowering potted plants, foliage plants, bedding plants, vegetables and herbs. They will also either design a bud vase, corsage, foil and bow a potted plant or plant cuttings. In the past 5 years, I have coached two teams to 1st in the state! I’m so excited to see how hard the team has been working without me. When I showed up Saturday morning there were 9 students in studying! Couldn’t believe it!
New classes are now available! If more classes need to be added, they will be added for the same day class is already offered, but at noon. Each class is limited to 8 people. Please make sure to reserve your spot early.
Classes make a great holiday gift! Call Beautiful Blooms by Jen at 419-517-8821 to pay for a class and we’ll email you a gift certificate to give as the gift!
I went to the Great Lakes Floral Expo a few weeks ago in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I had so much fun learning about trends for 2010 and all kinds of new ideas. In part one about my conference, check out these awesome bouquets. Cascade bouquets and arm bouquets are definitely in for 2010! Let me know what you think about these bouquets, and make sure to check back for part two and three!
