Escape with Dove & Olive
Dove & Olive will be partnering with Flourish Flower Farm in Asheville, NC to offer bi-annual weekend retreats beginning in 2021! These 3-day spring and fall weekend getaways will include on-the-farm floral arranging and yoga workshops, as well as one of a kind dining experiences catered by local chefs. Space is intentionally limited to ensure that our guests have a quality, personal experience. Tickets for our spring social will be available later this year!
*All amenities listed below are included with your ticket price and Social Club members will enjoy a discounted rate.
On-the-Farm Floral Arranging Workshop
This workshop will begin with an in-depth tour of the flower fields where you'll learn about the farm's growing techniques. After the tour of the fields, Niki, owner of Flourish Flower Farm, will demonstrate how to arrange a centerpiece while talking you through her basic design philosophy and principles. Then, its your turn to create your own! You will receive one-on-one support and guidance throughout the entire process and have a huge assortment of flowers to choose from! You can also stroll through the fields and snip to your heart’s content. We intentionally limit attendance so that the entire experience is personal and intimate.
*All materials will be provided.
Gourmet Catered Dining
Asheville is known for its food, drinks and views! We'll enjoy the best of all three with catered meals right on the farm. The menus will include green catering options, featuring local and seasonal produce from area farms and local artisans.
*Each ticket includes the following meals for every guest: Dinner on Friday; Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner on Saturday; Breakfast on Sunday. Our catering and beverage partners will be announced later this year!
On-the-Farm Yoga & Meditation Workshop
Nestled in nature’s beauty, this retreat is perfect for those looking to center themselves and reconnect. This yoga workshop will be a beautiful balance of self-reflection, strength and stretch offering many classic yoga shapes paced to the beat of your own breath. By letting go of distractions and showing up for yourself, you’ll find a sense of ease in the body and energy around you. This class is designed to cater to all levels - there is a place and a shape for everyone.
*Dove & Olive is excited to announce that Yoga Soullective will be leading our guided meditation and yoga workshop on-site at Flourish Flower Farm. Please be sure to bring your own yoga mat.
Meaningful Relationship Building
Our retreats create the time and space needed for self-reflection and deep understanding as well as connection with others. We are sure that the tranquility of this retreat will positively impact our guests’ emotional management and overall well-being, leading to authentic and genuine relationship building.
This retreat provides the perfect opportunity to focus attention on what is most important, the here and now. The natural setting and serene atmosphere that Asheville provides will help our guests escape the constant stimulation of the day-to-day and enjoy a thoughtful balance of engaging activities with intentional downtime.
