Foraged & Cut

 
The Video Transcript

Hi I’m Natasha Coan, the owner and designer for Foraged & Cut flowers. I started in 2012 in the flower industry at a local flower shop where I learned all the basics and worked my way up to being their lead wedding designer. I left there and I went to a local flower farm in Lynchburg where I still worked with weddings, still did events, but we actually grew all the flowers that we used. From my experience there and everything I learned, that what has brought me to start Foraged & Cut. I have two mains goals in mind that I would like to do. My first goal is for the client. I want to make sure every client I work with gets the event or wedding that they are dreaming of. And any way that I can do, anything I can do to help on the flower side of that, I would like to do. No matter what your style is, what design you’re going for, I can help you execute that. The second goal is that I would like to source most of my blooms locally or American-grown. I Don’t know if you knew this, but 80% of flowers sold in America are actually grown overseas and imported, so I would really like to help change that and with Foraged & Cut I will do my best to order from American farms and locally. I have relationships with farms from Virginia all the way to California so that I can do that to the best of my ability. I really love the slow flower movement that is happening in America. You can Google that to find out more information. But I also will be growing some of my own flowers for my clients. That is something I am really passionate about now that I have been working in the flower farming side of things. I am booking now July all the way through 2018. You’re welcome to look at my website foragedandcut.com for more information about that and to see my portfolio. I am excited to continue working in Lynchburg and the surrounding areas and to see what there is for the future of Foraged & Cut.
