Courtney has been with us since the late summer of 2014 and we’re happy to announce that she is taking over some of the managerial aspects of the farm this year. She will be answering a lot of the e-mails and so I wanted to formally introduce her and toot her horn a bit!
Courtney graduated from Salisbury University with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and a minor in Art. She then went on to work at one of the most successful flower farms in the U.S., Wollam Gardens in V.A. She has studied off-grid natural building in Taos and worked the Peony harvest in Homer, Alaska. She is currently working for us and managing the gardens at a bed and breakfast that caters to people traveling with their dogs. She enjoys making jewelry, cooking and loves to kayak, hike and go rock climbing. She also likes beer (thumbs up).
In addition to working two jobs Courtney is also currently studying horticultural therapy through the Horticultural Therapy Institute. I love hearing about her classes and am so inspired by her motivation and love for nature and healing!
We are so grateful to have her for another season and to share more of the farm responsibilities with her. Her presence is calming and sweet and she brings a sense of stability that we so desperately need at times!
The farm has changed so much since we’ve had a baby…. it’s incredible to have the support of co-workers who know the drill.
Thank you COCO for all the peaceful beauty you have brought to our lives! And for putting up with pop country during bouquet sessions! xoxo
