Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDED READING PRIOR TO THE START OF THE COURSE?

Q: HOW DOES THE FLORET LEARNING COMMUNITY WORK?

A: The Floret Learning Community is an optional component of the course and is offered as a bonus to the core workshop content. The Learning Community operates within a secret Facebook group that is available exclusively to Floret Online Workshop students. The Learning Community will serve as a place for course-related conversations and networking among registrants. Posts will be viewable only to group members. The group will remain active after the conclusion of the six weeks of the Floret Online Workshop, but the Floret Support Team will be less involved in discussions after that time, as we'll need to direct our attention back to our own farms and businesses.

 

Q:  WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT? CAN YOU SHARE THE LEARNING COMMUNITY INFORMATION WITH ME ANOTHER WAY?

A: If you'd like to participate in the optional Floret Learning Community Facebook Group, you may consider creating a Facebook account for use during the six-week course and then cancel it at the conclusion of the workshop. The discussions that will take place in the Facebook Learning Community will largely be among other participants, so there is not a way for us to easily share those discussions with non Facebook users.  

 

Q: HOW DO THE WEEKLY Q&A SESSIONS WORK?

A:  Each week during the first six weeks of the workshop, you will have an opportunity to submit a written question related to that week's module. Questions will be submitted inside the Online Workshop portal. Each week, Erin, Jill & the Floret Team will answer common questions and provide additional information. The Q&A session videos will be uploaded into the module the following week for students to view. 

 

Q: DOES THE ONLINE WORKSHOP INCLUDE FLORAL DESIGN TUTORIALS?

A: The Online Workshop provides detailed instruction on making market bouquets and efficient packaging techniques, but the course does not include wedding-type design tutorials. 


Q: WILL THE VIDEOS IN THE ONLINE WORKSHOP BE AVAILABLE AFTER 1 YEAR?

A. Yes! Unlike other online courses that restrict access to the content after a year or allow you to view it on only one device, the Floret Online Workshop information is yours to keep. You'll have lifetime access to all of the content and any updates we make to the modules.

 

Q: DO I NEED TO DOWNLOAD ANY SPECIAL SOFTWARE FOR THE WORKSHOP?

A: No. The workshop is a web-based platform, so all you need is an internet connection. The website works best when viewed from within Chrome browsers. You will not need to download any additional software.

 

Q: WHICH INTERNET BROWSER SHOULD I USE TO ACCESS THE FLORET ONLINE WORKSHOP? 

A: For the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome. We do NOT recommend using Internet Explorer. While other browsers such as Safari and Firefox should work, the platform works best with Chrome. Download Google Chrome here

 

Q:  WHEN WILL I GET ACCESS TO ALL OF THE WORKSHOP CONTENT?

A: Module 1 of the Floret Online Workshop will be released on January 4, 2019. We will release one module per week of the six-week course. Registrants will receive an email each Friday during the workshop letting you know the next module is available. At the end of the six weeks, you will have access to all of the content, which is yours to keep so that you can watch and re-watch the videos at your convenience. Sorry, but we cannot release any modules early.

 

Q:  DO I NEED TO LOG IN AT A SPECIFIC TIME EACH WEEK?

A: No. There isn't a specific time you need to log in to access the workshop content. Once a workshop module is released, you can watch the video lessons any day or time you want, whenever it is most convenient for you. 

 

Q: I HAVE A LOT ON MY PLATE. WHAT IF I FALL BEHIND IN THE LESSONS?

A: It is no problem at all. What is great about the online course is that you can go at your own pace and learn whenever and wherever you are. Plus, you get lifetime access to the videos and other content, so you can always come back when you need a refresher.

 

Q: WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?

A: Our refund policy can be found on our Terms & Conditions page.

Q:  HOW DO I SORT POSTS WITHIN THE FLORET LEARNING COMMUNITY FACEBOOK GROUP? 

A: Facebook typically sorts posts based on “Recent Activity.”  Posts with the latest activity (comments) will be listed first.
