A Season in Flower Farming
From a young age, Janis was always drawn to pretty flowers; flowers may be in her blood. After going away to post-secondary education and having a successful optical career, she returned to her roots and is re-kindling her love for flowers.
Harris Flower Farm is a 6 acre seasonal cut flower farm that provides beautiful flowers for local farmers markets, weddings and events. This is their 15th growing season. Flowers are produced from March to October, in November and December wintergreens are used in arrangements. They grow a large variety of annual, perennial, bulb and woody stem flowers.
Janis was the past the Canadian Regional Director for the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers.
