It's time to meet inspiring floral entrepreneur Kelly Morrison, recently interviewed by our contributor Mackenzie Nichols for the Summit Blog.
Learn more about Kelly and read her story of establishing her flower farm, Color Fields, and ultimately forming the Piedmont Wholesale Flowers, a Durham, N.C.-based farmer-to-florist cooperative.
Kelly shares her passion and commitment to influence local floral awareness and consumption in her community.

We're so excited that she will co-present at the Summit, along with Christine Hoffman, our co-host and owner of Twin Cities Floral Exchange, and Amanda Maurman of Michigan Flower Growers Cooperative.
