WHAT'S YOUR MOST FAVOURITE ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR?
Getting our permanent shop was definitely a huge milestone for us. Our xmas night market was a highlight I think. We had so many artists interested in stalls and it was the night of all that crazy giant hail in Sydney. We were worried no one would come for the artists sake but people were hopping out of Ubers and saying how much they wanted to support the event, it was very warming. :)
HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE CONCEPT FOR YOUR PLANT PARENTHOOD WORKSHOP?
When I first started Microcosm I was doing commercial plant hire and maintenance because that was the only example of a plant business I could find and the only thing I thought I could do with plants. Overtime I kept getting people ask if I would come look at their house and help them get plants for their home, or saying they love plants but no idea on how to look after them. So I thought I would do a fun workshop where I would start people off with plants that were easy to look after but still beautiful and interesting, their gateway plant. The workshops are my favourite thing I do now. I love receiving messages from people months after showing me new leaves on the plant they got in the workshop or their house that is now filled with plants because they know what to do now. I love that I get to help start their leafy adventure and be a part of their home.
WHO ARE SOME OF THE COMMERCIAL CLIENTS YOU HAVE?
I have worked with a few commercial clients, it’s not the main focus of what I do but I do love greening up a work space – Paramount House Hotel, Poor Toms Gin, Salisbury Hotel Stanmore, Young Henrys, Art Pharmacy, Hardcore Pies, Cornersmith Annandale, Triaxial Consulting, and soon Marrickville Hotel.
