First things first: What is a CSA Bouquet?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The idea behind a CSA is that you purchase a set number of weeks of flowers in advance and receive a share of my harvest. Investing ahead of time allows me to invest in seeds, compost and all the other inputs that guarantee that you will get to enjoy a variety of the most unique varieties of fresh and beautiful PEI-grown flowers through the upcoming growing season.
I arrange my CSA bouquets in re-usable mason jars to reduce waste, but can also wrap them in paper if that is more convenient for you. Your weekly bouquet can be picked up from my home studio in downtown Charlottetown. This reduces the cost of delivery and makes sure that your flowers are in excellent condition when you receive them. If you take care of your bouquet by snipping the ends of the stems and changing the water in your vase every couple of days your bouquet should last 7-10 days.
This season I have three Community Supported Agriculture membership options in addition to individual one-time bouquets:
Once your order has been placed you will receive an email to let you know when your first flower pickup will be available and where you can pick it up. Members are responsible for picking up their own bouquets at the central pickup location in Charlottetown during the times designated for pickup. Members will be reimbursed at a rate of $14/week for spring shares, $16/week for Island Summer shares and $18/week for Island Summer & Edible Flower shares in the event that the crop is damaged by unpredictable weather or the season shortened by an early frost.
If you would like to order a single seasonal bouquet please give me a call at (902) 213 9719 or send me a message. I cannot wait to help you create a beautiful arrangement with the freshest, highest quality blooms that I have in the field.
