There is a distinct, beautiful relationship between love and nature.
Foxglove in spring reaching out from an opened forest. Laying on the ground in fall feeling the wind brush against your face, colored leaves gently falling. Making tiny daisy flower crowns for you and your sweetheart while laying in the grass, the sun shining down. These moments in time are filled with color, with texture, with feeling.
Husband and Wife duo, MacKenzie and Sean, are the hearts and hands behind the blooms. We are fueled by our love for each other, the environment, and our greater community in the Pacific Northwest.
Sean earned his degree in business and finance from CSULB and then went on to travel the world as a boat captain, gaining inspiration from countless countries and cultures. He runs the business side of TopaFlora and is also our master carpenter and builder. Sean has an amazing eye for design when it comes to instillations and how to implement them. His favorite flower is the blue globe thistle.
MacKenzie was born and raised in Ojai, CA. Her parents allowed her a free-range childhood in their mountain home where she gained her inspiration from the abundant diversity of the valley’s flora and fauna. With 8 years farming experience and 4 years in floral design, there is a clear relationship in how working with the land has inspired her style of arrangements. She loves working with flowers and bringing her clients' visions to life using sustainable and locally grown flowers. Her favorite flower is Bells of Ireland
The original TopaFlora flower farm in Ojai,CA was hit by the Thomas Fire in December 2017. After much discussion Sean and MacKenzie uprooted themselves and settled on a property just north of PDX in Clark County. Here they are revitalizing an old 1910 farmhouse and 19 acres where they will be re-planting and re-seeding their flower dreams.
We are not certified organic, but we are committed to growing our flowers in a sustainable and natural fashion. We use horse manure from local barns, mix our own compost tea, create mixes of essential-oils for pest-management, rotate our field and use cover-crops to ensure the continued health of our soil.
Our seeds are sourced from small or employee-owned companies that carry rare and hard to find varieties so we can ensure that our products and designs are unique and one-of-a-kind.
