Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, I was raised on a mini farm that supplied produce and flowers to my family’s French restaurant. This was long before the farm-to-table movement was trendy!
I fondly remember helping my mother in the garden and relishing the days we got to go cut flowers for bouquets. While I miss the volcanic-rich soil of the Pacific Northwest, I am delighted to grow flowers here in North Carolina with the gentle seasons and predictable rains.
I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to grow lovely flowers for my beloved customers, and to live so much of my life outdoors. My life is spent in the dirt and the weather, and I labor with my hands to bring forth a beautiful product, all while being gentle with the land.
I grow specialty cut flowers for shareholders and design with for weddings, events, and workshops. I also sell my flowers to some talented florists.
