Where We Began
The Green Petal is owned and operated by Alison Corbett, a designer whose passion for flowers has been lifelong. After years of working in the floral industry and watching friends and family get married Alison decided that she wanted to bring the beauty and joy of flowers to others through her own business. It was January of 2015 when The Green Petal had been born.
Alison attended a vocational/agriculture high school and it’s there she discovered her true passion. High school is where she began working in greenhouses and taking floral design classes. She demonstrated her leadership skills as President of The Sound School FFA (Future Farmers of America) chapter for 4 years.
