Candice Gohn is a Master Gardener and native western Washingtonian who has been gardening for more than 50 years. Candice lives in Chimacum where she stewards 20 acres, and is floral designer and jack-of-whatever-needs-to-be-done at Gariss Gardens, a premier flower farm in Port Townsend. She will share the tips and tricks of growing flowers.

Lexi Koch is a farmer and flower arranger who lives in Port Townsend. Her flower arrangements are delivered throughout PT, the wholesale flower market at Seattle Wholesale Grower’s Market, and local weddings. She acknowledges that this land she currently farms on and waters she lives by are the traditional homelands of the Coast Salish Tribes. Lexi will share her floral-arranging secrets.

Sharrai Morgan-Faulkner AIFD, PFCI, has worked in the floral design industry for the past 24 years, and is the former owner of Holly’s Fine Flowers in Port Townsend. She is currently the Northwest Regional Rep to the AIFD national board and also the past president of the Northwest AIFD Region.
