The vineyard said they’re providing a free you-pick flower garden with one rule: for every bouquet you pick, you need to pick one for someone in a care facility or simply a friend in need.
Owner Jolee Wallace said, “I was inspired last year when I saw a farmer in Yolo, California named Mark Mezger who had planted various zinnia flowers in one of his fields for people to give to others. I got so excited when I saw his flower field that I wanted to do this here in Oregon.”
People are encouraged to bring their own vases, clippers and buckets. Vase donations are happily accepted.
