Meet Jennie

Owner and Creative Director of Love ‘n Fresh Flowers in Philadelphia, Jennie Love is a professionally-trained floriculturist and life-long farmer. Leaving behind an earlier career in corporate marketing, Jennie took up urban flower farming in 2008 and launched her bustling event design studio in 2009. A charismatic and passionate entrepreneur, Jennie found her natural niche crafting sustainable wedding designs using her own farm’s flowers. Arguably the foremost farmer-florist in the industry today, she has flowered more than 800 weddings and numerous other special events in the past decade.

Jennie has been featured in the New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides Magazine, The Knot, and the Philadelphia Inquirer for her seed-to-centerpiece efforts. She was named one of the top wedding florists in the nation by Martha Stewart. In addition to weddings, her distinctively lush and textural floral designs have been used in numerous photo shoots, magazines, style blogs, and books. Jennie has hosted hundreds of workshops and master classes at her farm as well as traveling across the U.S. and Canada to teach. She served for nine years on the leadership board of the international Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers, including three years as president. She is the host of the popular flower farming podcast, No-Till Flowers. In 2022, she launched the Regenerative Flower Farmers Network that has over 1,000 members worldwide today.

On a petite, but highly productive, five-acre farm in Philadelphia, Jennie runs a profitable floral business that fully supports herself and four+ employees each season. She has built her farm from the ground up, one hundred percent on her own initiative, over the past 15 years, using weddings and workshops as the main revenue source. In her courses, you’ll learn how she did it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this school include floral design training?

No, this school does not provide training on floral design, as this school’s primary goal is to train current or aspiring flower farmers how to build a profitable wedding/event farmer-florist business.

Why would I buy an online course when there is so much free information on the internet?

It’s true there is a TON of free information floating around out there. But is it reliably correct information? Does it fit your situation, your goals, your experience level? How much time do you have to sort through info from various sources and decide what fits your needs? Purchasing an online course from someone with decades of experience gives you instant access to an organized, detailed, reliably accurate set of lessons to save you time and energy, so you can focus on learning rather than researching.

What is the difference between School courses and Mini-Workshops?

Mini-Workshops vary from sixty minutes to over four hours of instruction, see individual courses for details. Each of these courses offers lots of valuable information on a specific topic that you can digest in a short amount of time and put into action right away.

School course content is much more comprehensive and covers broad topics. School courses are meant to serve as a long-term reference tool that you will use all throughout the course of your flower farming journey. Each course includes 6 modules, which each contain multiple video training sessions, instructor worksheets, and handouts, and an FAQ archive. All of the course sessions (including the FAQs) are searchable by keyword, so you can always find and go directly to the information that you need at any given time.

Do I have unlimited access?

Yes, you have lifetime unlimited access to your purchased courses. 

Do I have to watch at a certain time?

You can watch the courses anytime at your convenience. Purchased On-Demand Courses will appear in your library immediately and will always be there for viewing. 

Do you offer course discounts?

Yes, once you are part of our course family (owning any online school or workshop) you will be eligible for $50 off additional school courses.

I live outside of the USA, may I purchase a course?

Yes, our online courses are available internationally.

This sounds great, but can it be done in MY region/growing conditions?

YES! We strive to make the lessons in these courses universally applicable across all regions and growing conditions (as proven by our students who range from Alaska to the Tropics!). Rather than just telling you what to do, our courses will teach you how to assess your environment and make decisions based on your specific conditions.

20 reviews for Farmer-Florist School Online: The Wedding Process

  1. Rebecca

    Wow – weddings and events are a big opportunity for flower farmers! This course is a thorough guide to what it takes to be a successful and profitable farmer florist. Jennie is both inspiring and realistic about best practices and valuing your time and your ability to create a beautiful product, all the while maintaining a high standard for customer care and compassion. Like Lisa and Dave in other courses, Jennie is dedicated to sharing her knowledge and encouraging comaraderie amongst everyone involved in the wedding/event, as well as flower-farmer florists.

  2. Jonalyn Carver (store manager)

    Having lifetime access to your courses is absolutely a life saver! All winter and spring I have been referring back to your cool flowers book and video and Dave’s class is still being referred to multiple times a week as I figure out something in the field, prepare to plant something new and plan for this fall. Last night I sat down and reviewed portions of Jennie’s class as I was preparing for a consult today. I love that everything is so clearly labeled and easy to find and you can just pop back and find just what you need!

  3. Mary Turner

    For years, I have been trying to get to Jennie’s farm for a workshop and now she has come into my living room! Great course, lots of information – really tons of detailed information that is useful to our farmer-florist wedding business. Thanks everyone for such a fabulous course!!

  4. Terry Turner

    Jennie’s class was fantastic, she goes over so many things that I had never thought of and offers so much detail into how she runs her business. I definitely will be changing and adding to how I run the wedding side of my business. Thanks so much to Jennie and the Gardeners Workshop Farm for all of the hard work put into the class.
