Field To Vase
Scenic Place Peonies is located on picturesque East Hill, overlooking Kachemak Bay, at an elevation of 1,150 feet and grows 14 cultivars of peonies for the cut-flower market. It is one of Alaska’s largest producers of fresh-cut peony stems.
The Homer, Alaksa Field to Vase Workshop and Dinner are part of the 2017 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour, a series of elegant, intimate pop-up gatherings, located on seven flower and foliage farms across the country. At each unique meal and through the accompanying farm tour and design demonstrations, guests will make a personal connection between flowers and agriculture as part of America’s floral landscape. They will experience the age-old art and science of flower farming while being served platters of delicious, seasonal and locally-grown fare through four courses, including specialty desserts accompanied by vintage wines, micro-brewed beers and floral-inspired cocktails.
