See How It Went: Wreath Workshop with Alpharetta Parks & Recreation at Farm at Old Rucker Park

Sometimes things just come together in the most magical way... and that's exactly what happened at our first ever Wreath Workshop with Alpharetta Parks & Recreation. Held at one of our favorite spots in Atlanta: the little house at the Farm at Old Rucker Park! The charming spot located in the back of the property was transformed into a flower factory full of dried flowers and fruits, berries, fresh greenery, grapevine and evergreens foraged from the property by Kristen Orr, her team of volunteers and me. 

I am excited to share the photos from this dreamy little night just on the northern outskirts of Atlanta... and we look forward to many more events at this storied little neck of the wood.

“When you start with quality products, it’s easy to make something beautiful,” I always share in my classes. I also remind folks that, "it doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful." Even though I am am referring to the wreaths crafted in this class, I have to believe and hope that the same that the same philosophy applies to all floral designs and in life.


Nestled in between heaping piles of dried flowers, workshop attendees found space to make something personal and meaningful and beautiful. Amidst the creative thrill, we were happy to walk away with all wreaths being something we are proud to hang and looking good!


We’re grateful for the space that Alpharetta Parks and Recreation provided for our   winter workshop. After creating one of the most colorful messes that the place is sure to have ever seen, farm staff came to clean up the floor of flowers.  

Every workshop attendee walked away with a beautiful one-of-a kind creation to display year after year. And just as good things get better with age, each winter that these sustainbly crafted wreaths are displayed on doorposts around the Atlanta, they’ll hold more and more sweet holiday memories.

About the Farm at Old Rucker Park

Old Rucker Park is an approximately 10-acre tract of land that was once a commercial nursery and is home to a variety of species of plants and trees. The rolling topography of the property is highlighted by a small stream that runs through the park. While a small section of the site has been developed into the Old Rucker Farm, approximately 7.5 acres remain to be planned and developed into a passive recreational space.

The Old Rucker Farm is the home base of the city’s community agriculture program which was developed in 2018 with collaboration and guidance from numerous residents and community organizations. It includes an organically-grown vegetable, fruit, and cut-flower gardens, community garden plots, and an outdoor classroom, located within Old Rucker Park. The community agriculture program will evolve over time, striving to best serve and meet the needs of the entire community. The City of Alpharetta will continue to develop partnerships and programs to enhance the program, based on residents' feedback.
