We LOVE COMMUNITY. As the word gets our around Florence about our desire to bring the community into the pub, we have been getting FUN projects.
We had our friends from petal+branch come to our patio for a FLOWER SALE! This was such a fun event. These beautiful flowers pretty much SOLD out in one small event.
With hosting fun events like this, we learn more about the people in our hometown. petal+branch is a small business ran by Peggy Bradley. They are a small but mighty little flower farm.
Peggy’s Bantam Farm and a budding floral studio, petal+branch. Peggy has always loved flowers, growing them, arranging them. Peggy’s venture seemed like the perfect way to incorporate that into something she could do to ignite her passion and bring joy to others. Peggy’s mother instilled her love for the outdoors, nature and growing things. Peggy says she feels like her mom is right alongside her on this journey.
Peggy is a recent graduate of the Floret workshop 2019. Floret is a preeminent flower farm and the remarkable owner has been a major influencer and leader in the slow flower movement. Just like our food, there is much interest in flowers being grown locally, ethically and sustainably. Here is a short video that talks about the new way of looking out where Peggy sources her flowers.
Peggy will also be back at Homegrown for another flower sale, so STAY tuned to our Facebook page on when she will return. You can also catch up with Peggy on Facebook, Click Here to give her page a LIKE.
