FARMER / FLORIST AT MOON RIVER
Hi! I’m Claire, a home gardener and floral designer gone wild (with enthusiasm!).
Having grown and arranged flowers for over 7 years now. In order to meet growing demand, in 2021 I expanded my growing space to include 1/2 an acre of leased land in the Christchurch red zone.
With several years of study in Japanese flower arranging (Ikebana) I offer a unique design perspective. I love to work in harmony with the seasons and showcasing the one-off characteristics and beauty of each floral element in my arrangements. My style is naturalistic and whimsical.
Growing my own flowers and using organic farming techniques is important. I want to use locally grown flowers in my floristry and for them to be as fresh as possible. I have studied organic garden design and no dig farming techniques and continue to seek new flower farming knowledge at every opportunity.
With experience in creating florals for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, corporate events, valentine’s day, mother’s day and tribute flowers for funerals. I look forward to fulfilling your flower needs.
