Amy grew up on the family orchard in Vernon, B.C. She gained professional experience in agriculture during the summer growing seasons while completing her Bachelor of Science in Ecology. It wasn’t until the last year of her schooling that she realized she wanted to make a career out of farming and enrolled in courses such as Integrated Pest Management and Sustainable Agriculture. Following the completion of her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2014, Amy launched the flower farm business. Since then, she has been cultivating and selling fresh cut flowers and foliage to Vernon and the surrounding community. Pursuing her love of the arts, Amy also attended the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson B.C where she completed an intensive program on studio ceramics. In 2017, Amy launched Amy Lauren Ceramics. Now under one roof, Hawthorn Farm Studio houses the flower farm, pottery studio and more.
