Floral fun at Standalone as it reopens for half-term

Standalone Farm is set to re-open its gates on Monday 14th February just in time for half-term. There will be a host of fun activities, a special floral workshop and plenty of baby animals for visitors to meet.

The farm traditionally closes during the winter months to carry out important maintenance work and take care of its animals. To celebrate its reopening, Standalone has teamed up with Letchworth based nature lover, and outstanding floral designer Alice van der List from All In One Season to host a creative floral workshop called Love Is In Nature.

The workshops will run throughout half-term from Monday 14th to Friday 18th and are perfect for adults and children aged 6 and above. During each workshop small groups will forage the farm for natural materials to use to create a unique floral masterpiece to take home. Alice will share her knowledge on the surrounding landscape, encouraging the group to take inspiration from nature. 

Standalone Farm’s Events Manager, Anne-Claire Calcasola said: “We are so excited to work with talented floral designer Alice whose passion for nature will no doubt inspire some beautiful creations! The workshops are an opportunity for children and their grown-ups to spend some quality time together, let their artistic side loose and get creative. You don’t need to have any floristry experience to take part. Set in our charming rustic barn, the workshops will be relaxed, fun and a great opportunity to try something new.”

Tickets for the Love Is In Nature workshops are available here.

During the half-term week there will also be daily arts and crafts activities alongside animal feeding, milking demonstrations and pony grooming for families to enjoy. The Greenway Café will be re-opening with a brand-new menu and a new outdoor seating area.
