No Grit-No pearl
No grit, no pearl. 🕊This business has taught me so much in the last year. Building anything of value takes time and hard work. Struggle builds resilience and experience. Struggle provides direction🍃
I’ve had a lot of new followers recently so I’ll take this time to tell you all a little about me and the origins of Homegrown Blooms. Ever since I was little I have been drawn to working with nature, not against it. I had no idea there was a name for this concept and one day I would major in it- Sustainable Agriculture. But I’m jumping the gun...eager to start saving money and gain farming experience I got my first job at an apple orchard when I was 12 years old. The next couple years were spent immersing myself in diversified agriculture. My summer jobs were consumed with everything from seeding in hot greenhouses all day to milking cows and goats. I found my true calling while interning at a biodynamic farm called Swallowtail Farm in Florida in 2016-2017. This is where I met Mariana from Ladybug Blooms & was inspired by her trade- growing farm fresh flowers for CSA members, farmers markets, and weddings. After working under Mariana and getting to appreciate the art of growing the very details I could use to design with I returned to my hometown, Westport Massachusetts. Within the first few weeks of being home I called Mariana asking her recommendations for flowers I could grow late in the season. I was full of excitement and energy to share my organically grown flowers. After two seasons of growing & designing I have grown in humility and learned so much from fellow farmers and florists. I have grown in confidence and learned not to let criticism derail my progress. Instead of letting this drain me I have learned to let it motivate me. I have made so many heart melting deliveries and have experienced so many tears of happiness from clients. These are the moments that I’ll never forget and moments that help generate new ideas. I’m looking forward to the 2019 season & launching so many new ideas from the heart that I can’t wait for you all to see! When your values remain center of your business amazing things can happen!🌱
