Business Is Blooming
When local flower farmer Amanda Montgomery discovered the New Orleans Flower Collective last summer, she quickly emailed one of the growers to learn more.
"I asked her how it worked," Montgomery says. "She answered, ‘We get together and drink wine and talk about rain.' I thought, ‘I can do that.' "
So in September 2017, the Richmond Flower Collective made its debut via a "stem bar" at Perk Bon Air with flowers from the four member growers: Montgomery's Hummingbird Gardens, Eileen Waugh's Phloxtrot Flower Farm, Mason Moomaw's Burst and Bloom, and Stephanie Webber's Blue Eye Flowers.
The stem bars are the most visible of the growers' collaborations. Each brings a set number of stems, which are displayed in buckets in a local business. Customers then create their own bouquets of locally grown flowers, mixing and matching as they choose.
Montgomery says buying local flowers is like buying local foods: It's good for the economy and the environment.

About blooming time: Popular Autauga sunflower field running late this year
We're Pregnant" announcements.
The delay in seeing the blooms this year doesn't bother Amanda Lewis of Prattville.
"We went out the first year and just couldn't believe how beautiful the flowers were," she said. "There was a huge crowd out there, everybody taking pictures and smiling. We had a ball when we out there the second year. We had a picnic right there in the corner of the field. It's impossible to be in a bad mood in the middle of all those sunflowers.
"I'm just glad the Sheridans let everybody enjoy the flowers."
The flowers are planted for a reason, to make money. The seeds are harvested and the oil is used for everything from cooking oil to cosmetics. The seeds can also be used for livestock and bird feed. But for the Sheridans, the bottom line is more than just dollars and cents.
"We love everybody coming out," said Kim Sheridan, Todd's wife. "We love seeing all the families spending time together."
There have been times during the past two years when traffic jams have cropped up in this otherwise sleepy corner of the county. Todd Sheridan expects the same thing when this year's crop blooms.
The best way to keep up with the progress of the crop is The Sunflower Field page on Facebook. More than 6,300 people have visited the page, Todd Sheridan said.
"We had people ask us in December on the Facebook page when we were planting for this year," he said with a laugh. "We get messages and comments on the Facebook page year round. It's really amazing how much attention the field has gotten, and continues to get. We'll let everybody know when the flowers are blooming on the Facebook page."

This year's Ojai Valley Lavender Festival celebrates survival as well as purple blooms
How to Design, Build and Maintain a Greywater Irrigation System for Your Home Garden" at noon. Artist and musician turned health advocate Amanda Mullins will present "Make Your Favorite Foods Nutritious and Delicious" at 2 p.m.
Money raised from the festival will go toward agriculture-related scholarships and grants for area residents. This year, the festival awarded a $2,000 student scholarship and $7,000 in community grants to local homeowners to restore landscaping destroyed or damaged by the Thomas Fire, including the Luboffs.
"These people lost basically everything, so we were really thrilled to be able to provide a little something," Volland said. "It wasn't huge, but it was just enough to be able to replant something of what they lost."
For the Luboffs, the fire has taken a toll both economically and emotionally, said Tony Luboff. But the family is looking forward to returning to the lavender festival this year and eventually regaining what they've lost.
"The Thomas Fire did not help us one bit, but it's going to make us stronger," he said. "We'll come back stronger and better than ever."

Meet the 'flower children' behind some beautiful Dallas gardens
The gorgeous scenery is a project of Flower Child Plants, a specialty garden service in Dallas run by Cynthia Koogler and Amanda Godina, both 29, who met in college.They both found a love for horticulture at a young age. For Koogler, her interest in gardening started when she was 4 years old. She would spend time with her mother in their vegetable plot, pulling carrots and eating things straight from the garden. Koogler went on to work as a cashier at a plant nursery in Mansfield in high school.Godina also helped her mother in the garden when she was a child. But in El Paso, helping out meant watering twice a day in an attempt to keep plants alive in the desert climate and picking up pecans as they fell from the tree. When Godina was 15, she began to spend summers in Colorado, living with her sister and working on landscaping crews. May 24, 2018
