Meet the Experts:

After working for eight years on a variety of farms across the country, Phoebe started laying the groundwork for Weatherlow Florals in the fall of 2015, with the goal of helping to supply the wedding and event industry on the South Coast and in Rhode Island with sustainably grown specialty cut flowers and foliages. Her past farm experience has included vegetable and livestock farming, as well as edible and cut flower production. She is a graduate of Wellesley College with a degree in biology. Of all that farming has to offer, Phoebe most enjoys the tangible outcome after a day of hard work – neatly weeded rows of seedlings and buckets of lovely blooms
