About Sara Rolfsen-Kohn

Sara Rolfsen-Kohn is a full time flower farmer in the mountains of Western North Carolina (6a/7b). She grew up despising gardening, but slowly fell in love with it as an adult. She devours books and podcasts, lectures and videos on all sorts of topics relating to gardening, farming, soil science and microbiology, and everything in between. She also extensively experiments in her own garden and farm. She loves sharing all of the information she's learned over the years and is that person at parties who doesn’t know how to talk to normal people unless it’s about something like the symbiotic nature of mycorrhizal fungi and plant roots or the benefits of dry farming for plant hardiness.
