Floriculture class is learning how to make floral crowns in our floriculture wedding unit. Floral crowns were common in ancient Greece during special events and are still worn today. They have been used as a symbol for honoring achievements and respect. During the Victorian Era and in Ukraine they have been used in wedding ceremonies. Throughout history and around the world they have been a symbol of love and celebration. It is fun to watch the students learn how to create and personalize their live floral crowns. They took a few times to make, but they have been learning to master the techniques and they are coming out nice!

Interested in supporting The EWG Giving Tree?? Right now, trees are located in the community at Cornerstone, Back40, and Tilted Barn. You can go to a location and get a tag, or if you would like to help in a more general way without adopting a child, you can purchase gifts/stocking stuffers/gift cards and drop them off at door 6 of the Junior/Senior High School. We use gift cards to buy diapers etc. for families with babies and toddlers. We will wrap donated gifts and place them with an appropriate child. Any support is greatly appreciated!!!
