I met local farmer Jim Gerber a few years ago through some local food and farming meetings in the community.  At the time, he was just getting started with Locally Grown Co, his flower farm in Sanford.

It’s been a real pleasure watching his venture grow, through crop successes and failures, one beautiful bouquet after another.

Over time, he’s forged a partnership with Jenn Aquilia founder of Ethical Events

and Freshly Picked.  Nowadays, you’ll find Jenn manning the market booth, taking Jim’s gorgeous local flowers into arrangements in a variety of sizes and colors.  The flowers are cut and arranged each Monday, so they last extra long in your home.  Together, they are forging an exciting venture, bringing beautiful things into locals’ lives!

Here’s a recent video from Freshly Picked, starring those lovely flowers!
