Our society was founded in 1965 with the goal to give members the opportunity to meet together, develop and foster friendships, and learn and improve their skills with flowers. We have monthly meetings with guest speakers, demonstrations and workshops. Members are asked to volunteer to be part of a team for specific events. The team leader will work with clients ie brides, event organisers to meet their needs for flowers.
We work with cut flowers from local suppliers supplemented by greenery from our gardens. We have worked in most churches and venues in and around Christchurch, and as far afield as Hanmer, Port Levy, Terrace Downs, and Methven. Whether large marquee events or small country churches we just enjoy using flowers to create a beautiful atmosphere.
In 2014 we mounted a large display at the Ellerslie Garden Show to showcase our work. We were proud to be awarded a Bronze Award for our display.
