Blooms and Brews

The Missoula County Department of Ecology and Extension Service is launching a monthly education series called Blooms & Brews. This series will feature expert speakers on various topics related to gardening and our natural world. Donations to this series will go towards the creation and maintenance of the 2.5-acre educational gardens that will be adjoining the newly constructed Rocky Mountain Gardens and Exploration Center at the Missoula Fairgrounds, which will be home to the Missoula County Weed District and Extension, the Missoula Butterfly House & Insectarium and the Missoula Conservation District.

Upcoming Blooms & Brews Program

Local Flower Farming with Jennifer Barnard of Millay & Meadowlark Flower Farms

Gerald W Marks Exploration Center on the Missoula Fairgrounds

1075 South Ave W

Spend your evening with us as we learn about the local flower movement in Missoula and around the state. Jennifer will discuss what got her into the business and how the once-backyard production became a greenhouse, high tunnels, and 1.5 acres of high-density field production of cut flowers and foliage.

Jennifer will discuss the use of dried elements and tips and useful tools in the trade. She will also demonstrate how to create beautifully designed arrangements with dried flowers.

Registration includes 2 beverage tickets.

There will be cool hats for sale and free stickers to collect.
