Hannah Flood

Florist

Growing up amongst the endless fruit farms and sand dunes of coastal West Michigan, Hannah spent much of her time swimming in Lake Michigan, picking the ripest blueberries, and making pesto with her family. During the long winter months, she took refuge in the abundant time to tinker, experiment and create small crafts and other oddball inventions. Her love of working with her hands, soon lead her to the path of industrial arts, where she spent time learning how to work with tools, weld, and build structures. After coupling this love for creation with a deep cultural connection to food and landscape, she found solace in sustainable diverse farming systems. She was in awe of the vast unpredictability of the work she found in farming, and the electric possibility of working with nature as a partner in production. She went on to attend Michigan State University for Sustainable Horticulture, and continued to work on farms while attending. During this time, she worked for small scale CSA farms, university organic production research, urban farms and school garden projects, and helped manage the university food waste composting program. After graduating, she moved to New York, and began working at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. Following Stone Barns, she worked to create and convert a previous horse pasture into a 2 acre vegetable farm and CSA. When not working in the field, Hannah loves making homemade jam, listening to Motown records, and practicing yoga
