Creating an environmentally sustainable flower haven for pollinators - and humans alike. Sharing our connections to the natural world through intuitive and flower based workshops and immersive retreats.
We grow beautiful flowers in tune with the seasons, without chemicals or pesticides, providing safe homes and food for pollinators—and flowers for humans to enjoy! We teach flower and art workshops in our studio at Alchemy Farm, on Salt Spring Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. All of the flowers for workshops are harvested by participants directly from our gardens, right outside our studio doors!
Private and group workshops range from working with flowers and intuition to flower growing, floral design and large scale floral installation. Corporate day retreats are custom crafted for individual groups.
Each year, award winning environmental artist, Ingrid Koivukangas, co-creator of Alchemy Farm, creates a special environmental art project at Alchemy Farm. The opening of this work coincides with the opening of Canadian Flowers Week on July 18th. This year the Alchemy Farm Sound Garden, an Interactive Garden Tour, opens on July 18th and runs to September 15th, 2019. Book your tickets online or contact us to book a private group tour.
We are not currently booking weddings or offering flower deliveries. Flowers are available in our farm stand when they are available.
We believe in giving back and are proud to be members of KIVA where partial proceeds from our flower workshops and sales support farmers in third world countries.
Alchemy Flower and Intuitive School
Imagine if you could come to a place where you immediately felt nurtured and held, where you are invited to reconnect deeply with Nature, with your own intuition. Imagine that you could immerse yourself in the scents and textures of hundreds of different kinds of flowers. Take a walk through a sunlit alder forest just to listen to the sounds of the trees, and bird song. Close your eyes and stand in the middle of a field to feel the breeze softly touch your face, while the sun warms you and the fragrance of blackberries fills your senses. Look up to the blue sky to see eagles soaring overhead as ravens swoop down low to greet you. Imagine giving yourself the time to immerse yourself in nature while allowing your imagination to soar as you discover a feather on the path, or a special flower captures your imagination. Imagine taking these moments and transforming them into creative expressions that reconnect you to Nature–to yourself. This is Alchemy Farm.

Kind Words from our visitors
What a wonderful experience!… It was so nurturing to connect with the beauty of the farm, learn about the huge selection of flowers and plants on the Island. Ingrid (owner) was so knowledgable and so warm and kind… and patient, as we brought along our mother in law (78 yrs) and were able to spend time resting between the sections of tour. We were provided with some yummy treats and coffee before our bouquet design lesson. Overall, the experience was wonderful and I most certainly give it 5/5.
Magical place. Glad that my mom and I joined this tour+workshop. Ingrid is very knowledgeable on flowers and love her unique style of floral arrangements. Floral and nature lover won't be disappointed. Thank you.
Thank you ever so much! She was beaming all day. :) I so appreciate the added items, and your thought, yet humbly, and with no expectation on my part. Thank you for helping me convey my love, and for mirroring the beauty I experience with her. Thank you! :)
