I fell in love growing flowers, fruit, and vegetables as a little girl in my back yard with my mother and father. I had the incredible fortune to start Brightflower Nursery in July 2006. It was named a “Nursery” because of my long and rewarding career in landscape maintenance and design, and building and managing perennial nurseries; my focus then was using and growing plants in containers. I still grow many flowers, and herb and vegetable plants in containers for harvest and for sale but I have fallen back in love with growing in my back yard, tending the earth. I am privileged to call myself a farmer and to learn from other farmers who strive to nurture the land in which they make their living. The time has come to call my farm a farm, so I am changing the name to Brightflower Farm.
