Homegrown Florist, formerly Irvington Flower Bouquet, was founded by Lauren Hall Bushman in the Summer of 2015. With a large cut flower garden and a supportive community, she found herself harvesting, arranging and delivering flowers by bicycle to her neighbors. By the Fall of that same year, she had received requests for regular deliveries, and decided to venture into the world of Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and bouquet subscription services. With vibrant support from the Irvington community, Lauren then expanded her work to include special event and wedding day consultation and design.
Alongside flowers, Lauren is a psychotherapist in private practice. She works out of a tiny house built by herself, her husband and friends. Lauren embodies reverence for fiber arts and gardening. She continues to utilize her artistic design inspired by nature to create beautiful things for members of her community.
