For the FREE SPIRITS the ones...  

                    ones that stop to smell the ROSES, the FRUITING OLIVES,
even the WILD SEWN FLORETS...  

During our workshops you'll see it in real time - the processes, the passion and the systems that we've come up since we opened the doors in 1968. Not afraid to share our mistakes and willing to share what we've learned plus tips to make your learning curve milder than the 90 degree angle we've had. Honestly, we want to lift YOU above the struggles, wasted time, money and heartache that we've had.

You don't have to FEEL ready to BE ready. It's up to Y O U. 

Our workshops are famous for being real and raw -- not just beautiful, fluffy, and pretty. They're sincere and serious and carefully curated to give you every thing we've got, and more. Armed with our education, experience and heart, we work hard to partner with vendors to deliver experiences that you'll remember... for a very long time. 

for the women, the girls, the boys, men who see possibility everywhere. and always...

You ALREADY have everything it takes. 

always looking for something more. deeper, richer, meaningful. fun. intimately gathered and grown. bound with intention. draped with something so rich and deep and honest that it's within us all. it's just finding it. reworking the soil about it. seeking and watering it to bloom.

Come along with us. It's a total Colonial House experience - one that speaks to Sight, Sound, Smells, Heart, Mind & Soul.

Beauty that speaks to the mind and the senses 

Take your mind and body and most of all, your spirit to places you've never been before. Jump into those projects you've always wanted to learn how to do. Refresh your style, vision, drive, skills and perspective. Hear stories. Inspire others. Get excited and impressed.

Hearten you!  

The team of students who not only join our journey but live it right here beside us --  amaze us. Their work is incredible, And everyone is so generous and kind that every one of us learn from each other. 

It's cool that way!

The CHOF Workshop Series strives to deliver unique and special experiences for everyone. While planning and dreaming these courses we hope to offer something that you haven't experienced before and something that you can take home too - like a sense of friendship, community, and confidence - connections with people who are brought together by the timeless language of flowers that pierces the spoken word, ethnicity, gender, age and background, too. 

tilling unbroken soil. 

You've got this!
