The guest is a Colorado-based flower farmer and educator, Briana Bosch. Debra Prinzing recently met in person when Briana attended the Slow Flowers Summit, and Debra has been wanting to host her on the show so The Slow Flowers Summit finally got this conversation on the calendar to share with you.
Just a little bit of background: Armed with an MBA from the University of California, Briana established Blossom and Branch in 2019 with her husband. As she writes on the Blossom and Branch website:
“…cubicle life has just never been a fit for me. Farming runs in my blood: I am a fifth-generation farmer, but I myself never thought I would get a chance to start up my farm! We got lucky when we found 1.7 acres in the suburbs of Denver and moved to the farm in 2018.”
The farm name Blossom and Branch refers to the unique site, which is a half field (home to field-grown flowers such as annuals, roses, and peonies), and half woods–where Briana and her husband focus on providing habitat for wildlife and pollinators through native plants such as chokecherries, American plum, currants, and serviceberries.
Briana focuses on regenerative farming processes and carbon sequestration and how she shares her flowers with her community of flower lovers and wedding clients.
