Welcome to Alchemy Farm

Celebrating Canadian Flowers Week from July 18 to 25th! Book your ticket to visit the Alchemy Farm Sound Garden, Interactive Garden Tour, from July 18 to September 15th. 

Home of the Alchemy Flower Oracle and Eco Heart Oracle. We host Intuitive and Flower Workshops and Garden Tours at our beautiful 10 acre farm on Salt Spring Island.  We invite you to join us in this magical place of discovery, slow down and reconnect with Nature.

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.

The Alchemy Farm Sound Garden, is an interactive garden tour. The flower music was recorded using a special device that turns the energy of plants into musical notes—into a form that allows us, the listener, to connect to flowers and plants at a depth that has been inaccessible other than perhaps to shamans or people who work with unseen subtle energies. Bring your Smartphone or Tablet along with headphones to explore the Sound Garden—don't forget to download a QR Reader to your device to access the sound files. 
Spring at Alchemy Farm

Spring at Alchemy Farm

The front show garden is filing out with spring green in all shades and textures. Narcissus are waving cheerfully from all over the farm. I love their simple beauty and can barely bring myself to cut them into bouquets. Hyacinth are announcing themselves in perfumed strains on the breezes. The Hellebores are holding up their drooping heads alongside the Vinca and newly emerging Violets. Early tulips have started joining the party. The Bleeding Hearts are raising naked stalks skyward, along with the Peony and Aquilea. Everywhere flowers are beginning to emerge, welcoming this new spring.

The Perfection of Flower Messengers - Behind the Alchemy Flower Oracle

As I’ve worked with the flowers from choosing the seeds to germinating them and tending them, transplanting them and caring for them, I’ve worked with their energy. Each flower species feels different, they each carry a deep and ancient energy that manifests as flowers. Like us they are made of stardust and dinosaur bones, of incantations, breath of our Ancestors, that have travelled the Earth for eons. They are sacred beings, part of the circle of life that we all belong to.


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.

Monica

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.

Ruby

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! :)
