Program Description

Decorating with evergreen and natural materials during the winter season is very traditional. Our experts will show you how to harvest and handle evergreens and design both traditional and creative new options for making the most of the materials that may be right in your own back yard.

Instructors: 

  • Dave Fuller is an agriculture and non-timber forest products professional with UMaine Extension. His areas of focus include organic production of garlic and onions and non-timber forest product foraged crops such as wild leeks and ostrich fern fiddleheads.
  • Lynne Holland is a Horticulture professional for Androscoggin and Sagadahoc counties with over 30 years of floral design experience. Working with local flowers and natural materials is one of her specialties.
  • Molly Friedland is a farmer-florist, growing and selling specialty dried and fresh cut flowers out of Ellsworth and Bar Harbor, Maine. After a decade of managing vegetable farms in Western North Carolina and estate gardens on MDI, Molly now owns and operates the ‘Little Red Flower Truck’, a pop-up flower truck whose aim is to spread floral joy on the coast of Maine. The Little Red Flower Truck is available for custom events (birthday parties, baby and bridal showers etc.) as well as serving a small local delivery route for everyday floral needs. As the seasons change the Little Red Flower Truck shifts from sustainably-grown fresh-cuts to custom-created dried flower and evergreen wreaths.
