The Professional Floristry students experienced a very busy time in December preparing Christmas wreaths, which were in high demand. To celebrate Christmas, students on CDCFE’s Entrepreneurship – Start Your Own Business course had stalls at the Eco Christmas Craft Fair in the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin.
