Back in January one of the high school seniors in our community wanted to know if she could work with me for her senior project (each senior must complete a project to graduate, part of the project is volunteering and gaining hands on experience). I believe it is important to get involved in the community I live and work in so I was more than happy to work with her.
Meet Harmony! A mutual friend suggested that Harmony contact me and I am so glad she did. It has been wonderful getting to know her over these past few weeks. Harmony’s plan is to get a degree in business and potentially horticulture/botany at a 4 year university and then to hopefully attend an international floral design school. She is currently attending a community college part-time as part of the local the running start program designed to complete some college credit as a high school student.
One of our first meetings we went to a local wholesaler to pick up flowers for one of my corporate accounts. Here is a photo of Harmony with some of her favorite flowers…calla lilies. Orchids are another of her favorites. This weekend she will get a little hands on experience! She is going to make the boutonnieres for her group of friends attending the Tolo dance at the high school. We had a practice session earlier this week where she learned to make the boutonnieres and decided on the design of them.
Look for a blog post from Harmony soon. She is going to share a bit about her experience working with Jen’s Blossoms!
