Katie & Aaron
For the past several years Katie and Aaron have been growing flowers for loved ones and for their own personal enjoyment. Katie gained invaluable experience as the farm manager at Mountair Park Community Farm for Sprout City Farms from 2015-2018, a Garden Educator with Big Green, and currently, as the Farms Program Manager with GoFarm. Aaron and Katie are focusing on expanding FloraBee- their flower farm that supports a healthy ecosystem and their community while producing great blooms in the process. FloraBee flowers are grown without herbicides, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizers. So breathe deeply, enjoy those floral scents, explore the texture of the leaves, share the experience with your loved ones, and accept the call from your flowers to be rooted in the present or to enjoy the warm memories they evoke. Flowers have brought so much joy and beauty into Aaron and Katie's home over the years and it's their hope that they will do the same for you!
