Meet Carole Mapes of Flywheel Flowers in Brooks, Maine. Mapes grows MOFGA-certified organic vegetables and herbs, as well as perennial and annual flowers for many occasions. Flywheel Everlasting Flowers are available through Valentine's Day. Every Saturday in May, Mapes hosts a spring plant sale on her farm, and from May through October she sells fresh flowers at the Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor farmers' markets. You can also find many Flywheel Flowers products on the online store at https://www.flywheelflowers.com/. Mapes grows organically because, in addition to considering her farm a part of a larger ecosystem, she says, "It makes sense that if I'm growing crops for the purpose of bringing beauty into the lives of others that I would also take care with the practices I use to raise those crops." Flywheel Flowers has grown to what it is today with the help of Carole's sister, Lauren, and Carole's partner, Nick.
