About Lisa and Program Topics
Lisa Mason Ziegler tells it all when it comes to gardening and cut flowers. Lisa’s sustainable and organic gardening experiences have been gathered from everyday life on her cut-flower farm nestled in the heart of the city of Newport News, Virginia.
A home gardener, turned commercial cut-flower farmer began growing field-grown cut flowers in 1998 on less than 1 acre. In 2010 Lisa’s garden grew into a farm, now close to 3 acres. During the growing season, this farm yields over 10,000 stems of flowers each week. Her flowers are sold to florists, upscale supermarkets and through her programs “Garden Share” and “Bouquet Subscription Drop-off” that are in their 14th year.
Groups throughout the mid-Atlantic region and beyond have enjoyed Lisa’s motivational gardening talks; they are geared toward the beginner and the seasoned gardener alike. Her practical approach restores hope and makes gardening fun and successful.
In 2005 Lisa launched an online garden shop, The Gardener’s Workshop, offering the gardening and flower arranging tools and supplies she uses in her own gardens and cut flower operation.
Lisa’s program and pop-up shops incorporate her simple methods of gardening that inspire and delight.
