Blog: Happening on a Flower Farm
By Lisa Mason Ziegler
I’m Lisa Mason Ziegler. I started flower farming in 1998 in the heart of the city of Newport News, Virginia on the Ziegler family homestead. I blog about the endless happenings on a flower farm—challenges we face, how we manage to get it all done and my driven ambition to share the love of gardening with others. Follow along as I pour out all my experiences of how to have an easy and fabulous garden! This will be a very exciting year on the Gardener’s Workshop Farm! email@example.com

Babs is a golden retriever that lives on our flower farm in southeastern Virginia. She spends her days supervising farm work from the shade and cruising the gardens picking her own flowers and vegetables. At the end of the work day, you’ll find her curled up on the couch drifting off to sleep to dream of tomorrow’s adventures. Farm Dog Babs is like no other dog.

Photo Blog: Snapshots of a Flower Farm
By Kelly Mason LaBelle
I’m Kelly Mason LaBelle—and I am living the good life! Five years ago, I began working part-time with my two aunts Lisa and Suzanne, simply doing office work. Over the years, as The Gardener’s Workshop has grown, so have I. Now I’m a city girl turned farmer. My jobs on the farm vary on a daily basis, from soil blocking and packing all the beautiful kits we sell to maintaining our website. Every day is a new adventure that offers an endless supply of photo opportunities. I will share my favorite photos of our farm and its day-to-day happenings as well as the people (and dog) I spend my days with! firstname.lastname@example.org

Blog: Miracles in the Garden
By Susan Yoder Ackerman
I’m Susan Yoder Ackerman—a very lucky gardener. From the time I was a little girl, I lived with my parents in the world of larkspur and lettuce, blue sky and rain, and rich brown earth right here in Denbigh not a mile from Lisa’s garden. Now, years later, after growing papaya in the Congo, mint and parsley in the North African Sahel, and getting my knees sticky and red in my dad’s strawberry patch, I get to be a part of Lisa’s unstoppable color-popping flower production. A writer/teacher most of my professional life, I blog about daily outdoor miracles in the garden, as well as within the human spirit. email@example.com
