Forage + Design's studio is nestled within the city of Calgary, AB and was founded in the spring of 2016.
While Forest Art has been the focus of Heidi's main artistic ambitions; her other great passion of living art is her outdoor garden studio. She sneaks out whenever possible to the gardens which have been in progress for 3 years. The dedication, expression and beauty guides onlookers into a story in itself.
Walk past the shade gardens lush with ferns, hostas and a rather large rhubarb plant leading into open sunny spaces of carefully tended romantic, and fragrant heirloom flowers, foliage and vines. The sweet little potting shed is full of aromatic herbs while succulents hang off the roof.
A few of Heidi's favourite flowers are vintage inspired and old fashioned species in unusual colours and textures. Bearded Iris, peonies, zinnias, sunflowers, sweet peas, lisianthus, and dramatic amaranthus to name only a few.
The gardens are an extension of the studio while the studio compliments the gardens. the marriage of fresh flowers and preserved forest elements are the foundation and inspiration of bringing beauty to our clients.
Forage + Design's growing criteria focuses on implementing organic and sustainable practises from garden to client. The flowers are grown in Heidi's outdoor garden studio. No excessive fuel is used when supplying fresh flowers to local clients which support our goal of being conscious and kind to the environment.
Each bouquet of flowers or bucket of blooms is bursting with vibrant colour inspired by the seasons. Let us compliment your event or kitchen table with our blooms grown personally for you.
