Flowers in New York Outstanding in their Field

    • Education

New York Agriculture in the Classroom is thinking spring in this episode all about flowers. The cut flower business is interesting because it can be hyper-local, or incredibly global – and everywhere in between. First we will meet Jess Beretz, owner of Farmhouse Floral Design, as we talk about the twists and turns in her path that helped her find her calling in agriculture.

Michaela Kehrer is the agriculture teacher at Berne Knox Westerlo. Michaela grows incredible dahlias, and these flowers are purchased and used by her neighbor Jess Beretz in weddings across the capital region of New York. Inside the classroom, Michaela uses flowers as the real-world teaching tool to give her students a taste of running their own business, and hopefully encouraging their own entrepreneurship.
