More about Hanako and Midori Farm:  
Hanako discovered her love of gardening as a child and found her way to farming as a livelihood a few years into living in the Pacific Northwest. After spending years filling as many roles on the farm as possible, she has settled happily into the task of managing and care-taking the farm’s plant nursery and propagation operations. She also takes care of the farm animals, manages office operations and organizes a long list of behind-the-scenes details, most of them invisible but imperative. Her favorite part of her job are early morning and evening walks through the propagation houses planning for the day and week ahead.
