Floratopia Flowers

Floratopia is a small flower farm nestled in the hills of South Starksboro, Vermont. Specializing in growing a selection of flowers that lend themselves to creating wildly romantic, nature-inspired designs. Flowers are available at select locations, or through our Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Owner Liisa Von Ende and I collaborate on fun exchanges and giveaways this Spring and Fall for her customers and mine.

Crow's Cache

Erika/Ari (they/them) is the person behind Crow's Cache. They've been growing botanicals for 11 years and crafting powerful plants into nurturing herbal creations for 5 years. They are currently studying to be a community-clinical herbalist through Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism. Erika grows + tends most of the plants in their creations on unceded Abenaki and Mohican lands, with a commitment to ecological growing practices, mutual aid projects, and sliding scale model.

It is my honor to work with this very talented young herbalist and help promote each other's work.

Rasputitsa

The protagonists of community, freedom, and unity through cycling. Rasputitsa is more than a gravel cycling race. It’s a homegrown self-supported challenge of the mind, body, and soul that instills people with a connected sense of place and purpose. It’s an authentic experience that embraces: The Unknown. Change. All people. All bikes. 

You'll find Caroline's Dream at the Dirty Deeds Farmer's Market Friday, April 29, 2022 / 5pm - 8pm / Burke Mountain Hotel or potentially on the course during the event Saturday, April 30, 2022.

I also partner with these fine folks for their other event:

Vertical - Women's only event and the weekend is about coming together in nature.  Though all rides will have expert leaders available to help the focus isn't on instruction. I am gravel riding, fishing and glamping all weekend and providing Caroline's Dream gifts for all the women participants in 2021 and again in 2022!

Cailie Currin, owner of Move to Live, has been a yoga and meditation practitioner for many years. In addition to a 200 hour yoga training, Cailie holds a personal training certification from NASM, a Nutrition and Healthy Living certification from Cornell University and is a CrossFit Level 1 trainer.

I really enjoy Cailie's online cycling and yoga classes, she is an exceptional instructor. We are partnering on giveaways and discounts for our customers.

Elisabeth Waller Photography 

Elisabeth is professional, personable, and I can't recommend her enough. She is a great listener, collaborator and has worked very well with myself and my models.  I plan to continue working with her for all my photography needs. 
Models Sarah and Joe were at the beautiful Basin Harbor. Models Sarah (different Sarah!) and Nadine were at Emilo's Guest House. My thanks to all of them for knocking it out of the park for every photo!
