Born to a beekeeper and a florist’s bookkeeper, I was destined to be surrounded by blooms.
My birthday wish for a Venus Fly Trap plant at the age of six was fulfilled, and I've been seeking things that thrive in dirt ever since. Fruition is gifted to have a powerhouse family of friends (and actual family members) who lend hands in harvesting, weeding, wedding installations, and every imaginable task in between. With the nurturing support of these and many other people, my dreams of a flora-filled life are coming to fruition.
Gardening has long been my love, and my education in color and design lends a unique approach to how I compose floral arrangements. I appreciate the shape, texture, and movement of flowers and foliage, and seek out complimentary and contrasting colors to heighten nature's stemmed beauties. I've been fortunate enough to have worked under the direction of some of the country's leading designers like the floral wearables wizard Susan McLeary behind Passionflower, world renowned floral designer Ariella Chezar, and the powerhouse farmer florist Erin Benzakein of Floret.
Like the bees, I gather inspiration from the seasonal charm of New England, and use as many foraged and locally cultivated materials as possible.
We believe the cultivation of flowers should have as positive an impact on the earth as they do on their recipients. Through "no-spray" and other sustainable farm practices like composting, drip irrigation, and crop rotation, we strive to treat our lovely little piece of land gently.
Although we began our farm endeavor with hundreds of strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry bushes in 2013, our focus has fallen on establishing a flower crop that outlasts berry season and isn't as sticky as honey.
Fruition is growing up and laying down roots in the quirkiest little town of Newmarket, NH.
