A little bit about who we are:
Robyn Holmes, the head event planner & owner of Peachy Green, has been passionate about the environment & organizing events her whole life. In doing so she has assembled a team of assistants & local vendors to help make your event everything you desire. With her self motivation & drive to be able to do any job in front of her from planning to plumbing, she looks forward to dreaming up new ways to make your event eco-unique & a truly memorable event for everyone.
Her eye to detail has influenced her in planning events since 2004 with her first event, a 400 person fundraiser at the St Norbert Arts Centre, in the eco community where she volunteered full time. Over the past 12 years she has successfully planned many events, such as fundraisers, concerts (including Junofest) , birthday parties, showers, retirement parties & weddings. She also became a wedding commissioner for the Province of Manitoba six years ago.
Wherever she goes she tries to make any event more eco conscious, exciting & run smoother. From her volunteer crews at the West End Cultural Centre and the Winnipeg Folk Festival to organizing moral boosting theme days while sandbagging during the 2011 flood & in running her home and office. Peachy Green strives to take every step possible to be environmentally friendly, from the items she uses at events, the one of a kind decor rentals available, using recycled paper products, chemical free cleaning, energy saving & implementing the 3 R’s in everyday operations we reduce our business’s eco footprint.
The Peachy Green team, with over 15+ years of event planning experience, offers exceptional customer service providing a friendly style relationship while being involved in every aspect of the event from conception to clean-up. They also offer a unique list of ideas & designs, such as having an all in one event location to reduce emissions, having wedding outfits made from organic or recycled material, using jewellery made from local & recycled materials & renting decorations/equipment instead of single-use disposable items whenever possible. Even using seed paper for event stationary or using an event website instead of paper all together & many more eco ideas. They can also recommend local, eco conscious businesses where clients can get these items. This saves on emissions from shipping in items like flowers from South America & can support the local economy while not worrying if a company uses non fair trade or un-ethical practices.
What ever your next events is we look forward to using our expertise in helping make your next event one of a lifetime!
