The Bindweed Team: husband and wife, Ralph Thurston (RT) and Jeriann Sabin (Ja). RT aka "il maestro", is the brain and the brawn. Planning every detail, ordering all plant material, irrigating and orchestrating the farm's intricate planting schedule, he is a genius, a green thumb wizard. And not only that, he cuts nearly every stem, that's thousands and thousands each season. Ja is the beauty--as in aesthetics. As an artist, color and texture are her DNA. RT is responsible for the diverse varieties but Ja picks the colors. Never without her trusty smart phone/camera, she photographs every flower on the farm and loves keeping the Bindweed blog. She processes every stem--conditioning and packaging each bunch of flowers as they come in from the field. In charge of sales and delivery, she enjoys meeting and consulting with designers each week.
Passionate about small farms and farmers, Bindweed has been a member of ASCFG, the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers for over fifteen years. Each of them have served on the board of directors and have contributed articles for the quarterly.
