The Blooming Gardener - TBGF


Carolyn Elgin first began gardening 25 years ago because she loved flowers and all outdoor endeavors. Now she also cultivates herbs and tomatoes at her home in Rutherfordton. She moved here from Virginia in 2005 for the longer growing season and the chance to live in a historic home with more property.

After becoming unemployed, Carolyn found out about Foothills Connect and started selling her produce through the Farmers Fresh Market site. She has taken the NC Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteer course, the Sustainable Gardening Course, the NC REAL entrepreneurial course and GAP training. She has designed, installed, and maintained flower gardens in Rutherford, Henderson, Polk and Buncombe counties. Although she is now employed, she is preparing for a larger production herb and tomato garden using the techniques learned during her coursework.
