As a farmer and florist I provide your special occasion with seasonal detail and design.

Farmer

From seed to bouquet I am able to follow each bloom through the coarse of it's life cycle, bearing witness to it all - from the emergence of tiny leaves, to the bees they feed, and the hearts they touch once harvested. 

Florist

Flowers have the ability to transcend language. A flower fresh from the field is still imbued with the energy of it’s creation. That energy is inspiring to me and a gift I love to share in each of my creations.

Family

When you hire me, you hire my family. My husband cheers me on, and often will help with the heavy lifting, my daughters are my beauty and reality. They are a constant wonder, unwavering love, and absolute inspiration for me.

Our one little acre farm provides the foundation for our entire family. It is the root from which we grow nourishment, experience connections, foster creativity, work hard and find the value in caring for something greater than ourselves. We deeply respect and celebrate mother nature's intricacies everyday. Her cycles are ours and my farming practices reflect this reverence. I grow organically - utilizing homegrown compost and a no till approach.

I am also a proud member and founder of the Michigan Flower Growers' Cooperative - a farmer owned coop that allows flower growers to pool their weekly availability to make available to florists, floral shops, and DIY eventers in the Ann Arbor area. For more information click here.

By joining my two callings - farming and floristry - I allow myself to be a creative person, as well as a steward of the land. I turn to my garden and surroundings for inspiration and find mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual connection to season and place. Working with these natural elements energizes and fulfills me. It opens my heart to the power of vulnerability and connects me to life, death, and nourishment. It is hard, dirty, raw, sorrowful, beautiful, and exhilarating work that I am grateful for everyday.  

Every natural thing is imbued with the power of it’s creation -everything as grand as the seasons down to a single seed. A plant, freshly picked from the garden shifts that energy to the gardener. I can feel it when I work them into a design, and so can my clients. This is why I am so committed to using my own flowers or those of my flower farming community in all of my design work. The inspiration and creative energy is fresh, powerful, and unparalleled. When I am absolutely unable to utilize local, I turn to other American farmers with sustainable practices. Needless to say, your flowers are thoughtfully sourced and lovingly arranged.
