Educational Opportunities

2020 Educational Classes

WUMFA’s Educational Opportunities offer complete, hands-on training to hundreds of students each year with special thanks to the Wisconsin Florist Foundation and their financial support. The Education Development committee drafts the course curriculum and hires and trains instructors from a pool of applicants. Courses are held in sponsoring wholesale houses when available. Wholesale partners also provide generous contributions of supplies enabling WUMFA to offer quality educational sessions at reasonable prices. Through the support of dedicated volunteers, wholesale members and the Wisconsin Florist Foundation, WUMFA is able to provide up-to-date, hands-on, educational sessions for a very low cost for WUMFA members.
