Flower Farming – A Career Change 2021
Thank you so much for such an informative & detailed workshop. As it is a change in lifestyle & career it was so important that both Mark & I attended. I was apprehensive at first as he may be the only male there but it was great. He said at first he thought he would feel like a fish out of water, but everyone was so friendly, he didn’t feel out of place at all.
The content of the workshop was so clearly set out it quickly started to focus your mind on how each individual could take there ideas further. The group were so helpful sharing their ideas and thoughts & I think everyone gained help from each other, as well as your expert help & knowledge. You aimed the details at the right level for every one & did not paint a picture of flower growing with rose tinted glasses. You showed it as it truly is. Hard work & a constant learning curve, but so rewarding being able to do something you want to do & have a passion for.
Our thanks & compliment go to the chef ‘Pete’ your lovely husband. We were blown away by such an amazing lunch ( restaurant standard is an understatement), & the cake was so look yummy!
The day just got better & better. It was so informative looking around your growing area & thank you for all your tips and advice. I really didn’t want the day to end. I just wish you were nearer to me, as I would be booking on all your courses.
To anyone thinking of coming on this course, do not hesitate. It focuses your mind on what you really want, decide if it is practical for you & allows you to not just dream, but begin to set in action your ideas with your eyes wide open, but with the support & inspiration provided by Kate. A true inspiration & kindred spirit. Do not be afraid of going along if you are a man, being surrounded by women isn’t that bad, & my husbands word were , great to just be accepted for who you are and what you bring to the mix.
I hope you don’t mind if I keep in touch, it feels like you are a friend, & when we said if you & Pete are ever in the area you are very welcome to come & stay, anytime.
Hope we get to catch up at Edinburgh. Thank you for the plants! We really weren’t expecting them. I am going to plant them this afternoon, after I’ve been to care for my friend. My case of flowers look beautiful & a lovely reminder of a brilliant weekend. Sending luv n hugs & special ones for your loss on Friday. Keep making lovely memories & moments with Peaches X
Luv Andrea & Mark X X x
