WreathWorkshop2017-1725Blooming Desert’s principal designer, Shannon Lester, enjoys teaching seasonal workshops both locally and on her travels.  She has over 22 years of experience in the plant nursery and landscape design/installation industry.  Shannon focuses her teaching on design trends, plant selection, succulents, xeriscaping, living centerpieces, wreath making and other green D.I.Y. creations

Shannon’s Fall Wreath Making and ‘Beers & Boughs’ workshops typically sell out at every venue.  These workshops are held at a local brewery, tap house or private residence/place of business.  She uses natural, foraged materials, succulents and seed pods, foliage and hops from the Lester’s 1/4 acre, cut flower, vegetable and hop farm, Lucky Foot Farm & Hoppery.   Contact us for inquires or to be added to her schedule.
