CAN (ON): Everything dahlias at new East Gwillimbury flower farm

Growing up in India, Sonia and Shilpa Malik would grow dahlias with their family, and when the pandemic hit in 2020, the sisters decided to get their creative energy out by using their green thumbs.

It was Shilpa’s brainchild after her full-time job transitioned to working from home due to the pandemic.

“She had extra time, and she said we should grow flowers,” said Sonia. “We had always grown them in India, and so we ripped up her backyard and planted a whole bunch of dahlias, and then we ripped out the front yard and planted more.”

Sonia said that they had so many dahlias that they didn’t know what to do, and they ended up calling the Bradford Farmers Market.

“We booked a booth for four months, and we had so many flowers that we wanted to share with the community,” she said. “We had a great response and realized we had something here.”
