Lydia Jackson


Lydia is a farmer florist with a history in design and colour consulting. She is a vibrant individual who shares her love of food and flowers, while promoting and teaching environmentally-friendly farm and garden practices. When she is not covered in dirt, she is usually covered in paint or sawdust. An avid refinisher, woodworker, and thrifter, she thrives in bringing new life to old things. At home, there is never a dull moment with her husband, three kids, two dogs, and 10 chickens. She drinks way too much coffee, and thinks brussel sprouts are gross and cheese goes with everything.
