By the time we discovered the genius flower share program by Heidi Joynt of Field & Florist last spring, it had already sold out. This year, we?re signing up early for ten weeks of fresh flower deliveries courtesy of our one true love--ourself.
Now in its second year, the Field & Florist share costs $300 per participant--that?s $30 a bouquet, just about what you?d pay for a meh arrangement at a grocery store and a lot less than the price of anything nice from a florist.
Joynt grows her blooms on Chicago-area farms using sustainable practices like water-saving drip-line irrigation and organic fertilizer. The program has expanded thanks to a partnership with Lakeview?s Heritage Bicycles, whose owners offered Joynt an additional half-acre of unused land they own in Barrington.
The share runs from July 11 through mid-September; each week?s seasonal, colorful, hand-tied bouquet contains about 15 to 20 stems wrapped in brown kraft paper. Flowers may be picked up at locations in Andersonville, Logan Square or Lakeview. Pay an additional $50 for season-long delivery and your first bouquet will come in a glass vase.
