Pumpkin Succulent Workshop

]Autumn brings with it the opportunity for so many wonderful activities and memories to make with family and friends. So, when my son gave me the idea of crafting pumpkin succulents, it definitely gave me something to think about.

Now for those that know me, I’m usually not a workshop type of gal and actually hosting an event like this here at the farm was way out of my comfort zone. However, I kept going back to the idea, thought it sounded fun and might be something others would enjoy too. Not only was it the perfect time of year, but it was also different than other types of workshop activities I had gone to in the past.

When I first announced the pumpkin succulent workshop, honestly, I wasn’t expecting a huge response, but by golly was I wrong. Not only was it a great success, but so much fun getting to know the ladies that attended in a fun group laid back setting.  In fact, it was so well-liked, that we announced a second workshop and I joyfully received even more interest and enthusiasm from you all.

Reflecting back on the events, I am proud of myself for having the courage to step outside my comfort zone, take on something new and seeing it through. Not only that, it was a success that I could be proud of and a great life lesson for my eight-year-old son. I also have a renewed love for gardening and look forward to what else that will invoke.

I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you that attended the workshop events. It was a pleasure getting to know you all better. And for those that have asked about additional workshop dates, we intend on offering them again next year!

The greatest moments of our lives are hinged on life experiences and interactions with others. They help to form us, and we become who we are based on those exchanges, both good and bad.

I am grateful that in this woven tapestry of life, many of these moments are filled with good. To celebrate, each year I honor some of the educational influencers and teachers of this valley. My intention is to pay tribute to their dedication in their chosen profession and perhaps gain a bit of insight. These women are wonderful women, kind and full of empathy, who have a great influence on our children and the important role or molding them into young men and women.

Here are a just a few of the wonderful women I call friends who attend our annual brunch.

“I look forward to and relish in the fantastic brunches that my friend Cheyla at Wheat Brothers Farms puts on every fall. I am always amazed at the beautiful tablescapes that she designs. I feel pampered and “seen” by a friend that takes such time to put together a gathering of woman that share life, love and a love of beautiful things. She knows the heart of the woman in her life and she expresses such gratitude toward them with these special brunches. I am beyond grateful to call her my friend and feel honored to be invited to the table every fall!  ❤️❤️❤️”

“It was such an honor to be invited to a beautiful Saturday morning brunch on the patio at Wheat Brothers Farms. As I arrived, I was greeted with the smell of fresh coffee, sausage and homemade pancakes. The table was beautifully set on the patio with fresh flowers, pastries and fine china. Our conversation was light as we ate and got reacquainted with close friends and family. In a nutshell, it was a sweet reminder to slow down and enjoy the people that God has blessed us with!”


What a beautiful way to start a new season and I look forward to hosting again next year.

I hope that Autumn snuggles right into your heart.
