When living in San Francisco with her husband, Alec, and two sons, Melissa Glorieux loved shopping at the farmers’ markets for fresh-cut flowers. This experience on the West Coast inspired her to start her own farm, growing local sustainable flowers upon moving home to Massachusetts. Glorieux practices the three Rs—reduce, reuse, recycle—in her farming and her floral design business. This season, Meadow Wilds, Roving Radish, and 1956 Blooms, among other floral designers, will join Aster B. on the farm to create the Essex Flower Co-op, a flower grower and floral designer cooperative. Members of the co-op will share expertise and support one another in their flower-centric endeavors.
