Have you ever wanted to have dinner at a flower farm? The Field to Vase dinner tour gave many that very opportunity in 10 different cities serving up local flowers and fare. Mayesh was a sponsor for the Carpinteria, Carlsbad, and Portland dinners along with with the upcoming final date in Detroit (complimenting The Flower House installation happening during the same week)!
Amy Gebhardt, our Portland branch manager, attended and said that “it was cool to bring together customers, wholesalers, vendors, growers and end users all at the same table. Sitting next to someone you do not know and striking up a conversation about how you came to be at the dinner was great.”
Take a peak at the pictures Amy took at the dinner and stay tuned for a post on the dinner tour finale in Detroit. Tickets for the dinner are unfortunately sold out, but you can still get tickets for The Flower House, which is going to be amazing!
