Sea Change Farm & Flower is a small flower growing operation based out of Kingston, NY. At Sea Change, we employ sustainable growing methods to keep chemicals off your flowers.
Meet your farmer
Hi, I’m Samantha!
I left New York City and moved upstate when I realized that I care deeply about connecting people, including myself, with nature.
I used to leave the city for hiking trips almost every weekend, but it still couldn’t make up for all those hours spent in the concrete jungle. I felt a real disconnect between my day-to-day life and the changing seasons around me.
Maybe you can relate?
I decided to grow flowers because of the power they have to bring nature and joy into the lives of so many people.
My formal background is in software engineering, which sounds hugely different from farming. And it is! But, farmers actually do a ton of problem-solving, and I love that growing flowers exercises my brain and my body. I am thrilled to enter my second growing season at Sea Change and to be your flower farmer.
What about the name?
The name Sea Change comes from something a friend said to me when I left the city in search of a life closer to nature:
“Good luck with your sea change, Sam!”
A “sea change” is a shifting of the winds, a changing of tides, a movement in great currents around us.
As well as being a major shift in this farmer’s life, the name Sea Change is a nod to the growing power of the Slow Flowers movement, a larger shift in how we think about flowers. I am excited to contribute to that change in perspective, and to help people realize the value and incomparable beauty of flowers grown locally, seasonally, and in environmentally responsible ways.
