History of Green Valley Flower & Herb

Posted by Susan Bassetti on Dec 21, 2013

Green Valley Flower and Herb was started in 1979 providing fresh herb and flower wreaths locally. A primary customer in the early times was Heart’s Ease, in Cambria, founded by Sharon Lovejoy. If you are not familiar with Sharon Lovejoy’s achievements and writings, check out her website at sharonlovejoy@sharonlovejoy.com. Her recent book “Toad Cottages & Shooting Stars: Grandma’s Bag of Tricks-130 Wonder-Filled Activities” is an encyclopedia of fun things for little ones.

The business matured over the years to providing wreaths for large volume customers including Pier 1, QVC, William-Sonoma, Gardener’s Eden, Crate & Barrel and Pro Flowers Currently we’ve limited our supply chain to Pro Flowers, local farmers markets and, of course, our web site. Had to choose between growing grapes, making wine, olive orchards or mass producing wreaths – guess what won.
