We believe a connection to the land is important, so we grow many Texas native flowers, grasses and shrubs that reflect our surroundings and help give a sense of place to our bouquets and arrangements. By growing these natives, we can also reduce our water usage and inputs, attract beneficial insects and pollinators and provide food and habitat to mammals and birds.
We steward a small patch of land in the Blackland Prairie ecoregion that was a former horse pasture. Prairies are beautiful and diverse ecosystems that are at risk all around the world. It is a privilege to farm on this prairie, so we aim to revitalize areas of the farm as part of our stewardship plan by removing non-native grasses and re-populating those areas with native grasses and forbs (many from seeds we collect on the farm itself). This is a work of a lifetime and we’re grateful to participate in it.
