Biography

Meg Southerland began Gardenworks at MacClan Farms with her father when he retired from the family dairy farm in 1992. The Gardenworks farm now produces U-pick blueberries and raspberries, in addition to growing flowers used in floral arrangements. Their fall harvest produces pumpkins and specialty winter squashes, and winter offers fresh evergreens, wreaths and Christmas trees. Inside the store, Southerland offers handcrafted gifts, specialty foods, and an area where stained-glass and soap-making workshops are held. Meg Southerland holds a Bachelor's Degree in plant science from Cornell University and a Master's Degree in botanic garden management from the University of Delaware. As a student, she apprenticed at the Kew Royal Botanical Gardens in London and the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens in Scotland.
