Meet the Team
"Ohana Means Family" and it takes all of us to make it work!
Plants, people, animals, insects, sunshine, raindrops, nature - we are all connected.
How does it happen? Hand grown, sweat, hand-dug, more sweat, carefully harvested, selling, giving back.
As a small family farm with a big vision, it takes everyone working together to create success here on the farm.
Bottom line? We are the wild natives that make it happen.
Liza Goetz - CFG - Chief Flower Grower
Founder of Wildly Native Flower Farm
Liza has been growing plants pretty much her whole life. It all started in the garden with her Mom - she was always stuck in the mud!
A graduate of Delaware Valley University, Dog Lover, a Certified Professional Horticulturist, FFA Member, Ag Teacher, and all-around outdoorswoman, Liza loves to be outside in the garden.
Liza learned to smell the flowers & in 2017 she stepped into the adventure of growing plants on a larger scale and created Wildly Native.
Lizzy Goetz - COD - Chief of Design
Flowers make everyone smile and Lizzy is no exception to this rule! Her knack for flower scents and color palettes always has her in the middle of everything we are working on in the field, the design room, and the greenhouse.
Often heard "Oohing and Ahhing" over the flowers that start blooming, Liz is quick to comment on the subtle nuances of scent and colors in the field. She is always hands-on, digs in, and loves to watch the butterflies on their journeys. Her passion for flowers and all things green actually has her studying at Delaware Valley University for Landscape Design!
Kenly Brice - The Backbone
Wait… seeds have bones? Every single seed planted is touched by her at one point - Kenly is the master of all things seeds. We plant everything by hand and it all starts with a single seed in the tray. How does it get there? Kenly. Detail oriented and sometimes cross eyed from all the teeny tiny seeds, she works to ensure each seed is nestled into a prepared bed to promote growth. Without her? The whole operation wouldn’t work because what is a flower farm without flowers? She literally is the backbone of what we do.
Amber Bryden - Head Seed Pod
The one often found behind the scenes, Amber is the master of color-coordinated calendars and other organizational things. Goat yoga is her jam and she is the dog, duck, cat, rooster, lizard, (or whatever you throw at her) creature, whisperer. Not unusual to find her chatting with toads in the field, Amber encourages her four-legged friends to warn her if there are spiders near...
Will Goetz - CTD - Chief Tractor Driver
General Operations - If it can be driven he is on it...
Will is the "main man" behind the scenes. Tractor work, assembly of the greenhouse, digging, fixing things that break, and everything in between, he is the "go-to" man to get it accomplished!
Most likely to be found outside, in the mud, fishing when he's not working, on a mower, or tending the chickens, Will is the chief operator of the machinery here on the farm. Able to fix about anything, he can be counted on to get it done!
Rhandi Brown - The Buzzle Bee
Her get it all done, jack of all trades, willing to jump in wherever, including a background in horticulture makes her our very own buzzle bee! Rhandi is our newest hire who has a passion for florals, trees, shrubs and butterflies. Nothing much flusters her and her quick wit and genuine heartfelt smile make her a great addition to our team. Often seen buzzing from task to task no matter what needs to be done, we are lucky to have this “BEEutiful” young lady a part of our team!
Renia Gray - Mistress of the Mint
Often found out in the herbs, Renia works to blend our new teas and helps put together scents for our candles. You can literally smell her coming as she comes in from the herbs she has been working in. Carefully selecting florals to blend as we step into this new venture, she loves a good cup of tea and often checks on all of us to make sure we are all hydrated. We can hardly contain our “excitemint”!
Delaney Gray - YeahNahh
No matter the task, Delaney tackles it with ease and grace. Dig up that huge bush? Yep. Take out those weeds? Yep. Run the mower in insane heat to make it neat? Yep. Can you tie up that eucalyptus? Yep. Do you need a break? Nah... Do you need a snack? Nah… Hardworking and determined to do it right no matter what (or how dirty it is) Delaney is a force to be reckoned with in the field. Working out in the fields is not for the faint of heart, but not much bothers her and she is quick to volunteer for tasks other folks may find daunting.
Hannah Walker -Ray of Sunshine
Sunshine in human form - Hannah is a Ray of sunshine and our Jack of all Trades. No task is ever too big, no detail is too small, Hannah is a true team player and is an expert at helping find the sunshine in any situation. Florals ready to deliver then accidentally gets dropped on the floor? Hannah is the first one to help clean it up and make it right. Someone working in the field who needs a knee pad? Hannah is the first one to hand over a padded break for their knees. Quietly taking care of all of us, her recent graduation with a Graphics Design degree shows her tenacious spirit and creative side.
