The fourth season of the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour kicks off this month, with two dinners at California flower farms.

The fourth season of the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour is about to get underway. Every year, these artisan dinners take place in the fields and greenhouses of America’s stunning flower and foliage farms from coast to coast.
Seasonal, local and sustainable cut flowers, arranged by top U.S. floral designers, grace the tables and venues, and renowned chefs prepare delectable farm-to-table foods, artfully paired with domestically produced craft beer and wine.When you attend one of these events, you’ll make a personal connection between flowers and agriculture as part of our country’s farm landscape. You’ll also meet others who are passionate about preserving American Grown Flowers, farmland and our country’s floriculture roots. While enjoying an artisanal meal, you’ll be enchanted by the botanical beauty of the flowers, foliage, vines, buds and berries at the center of the tables, which are artfully designed to enhance the entire sensory experience.Each American Grown Field to Vase Dinner includes:

  • A brief farm tour and floral design demonstration during the reception
  • An artisan-style, locally sourced meal, craft beer and wine
  • American Grown Flowers to take home
  • A flower-lovers gift bag
  • Personal stories and lively conversations from the chefs and flower farmers. Visit to learn more about this year’s events, register to attend a dinner and see photos from previous events. n
