SPECIALTY CUT FLOWERS GROWN IN BROOKS, GA

About Us

Bloomsbury Lane Farm is a small specialty cut flower farm nurtured by Becky Godlasky in Brooks, Georgia just south of Peachtree City in Fayette County.

Our farm germinated from a love of green, growing things and a deep desire to share the joy that a beautiful bouquet of flowers brings to our lives.

We grow our flowers naturally, without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, and our fields are teeming with pollinators of all sorts. While most flowers you’ll find today have traveled thousands of miles over the course of several days to reach you, ours are harvested right before we offer them to our clients. You can always be sure that you’ll have the healthiest, freshest blooms from our fields located just down the road from where you live.

We sell our flowers regularly at the Brooks Farmers’ Market, occasionally at other locations, and through a subscription service offered here through our website. When you take home a bouquet of our beautiful, fragrant blooms, you not only add beauty to your daily life, but you also directly support your local economy and promote a sustainable, environmentally friendly way of doing business.

Saying "Yes" to Yourself

This post is peripherally about flowers and mostly about . I have a saying, a mantra of sorts, that I have often used with my colleagues at the college I taught at until very recently (I've left to devote all of my work time to flower farming). Teaching is one of those jobs that has a very high potential for infiltrating every waking moment of someone's life. But then, when I think of it, no matter what our jobs are, the harried, hurried, responsibility-filled schedules we find ourselves keeping these days tend to infiltrate every waking moment, as well. And this has a profound impact on our physical and emotional health. We need remember that we can't fix all of the problems of the world ourselves. The mantra is "Saying 'no' to others is saying 'yes' to myself." I know it can sound selfish, but it stands as a powerful reminder to me that I must take care of myself if I want to  take care of others effectively. I've spent the bulk of my life so far doing the exact opposite--giving everything to others and finding myself frequently drained, both physically and emotionally. There is a very good reason why we are told on airplanes that if oxygen masks drop from the ceiling, we are to put the mask on ourselves first before we are to assist others. If we can't breathe, we will be of no use to anyone else. So the emphasis in the mantra is much less on the saying "no" others and more on the saying "yes" to ourselves portion. It means claiming at least 15 minutes for ourselves in a day, and there are countless ways that we can do this. I play the piano, meditate, read, take a walk, pull weeds (yes, I like to pull weeds), or simply take a nap. But I now fiercely protect those moments when I can do something that feeds my body or my soul. I also do nice things for myself, such as putting flowers in my living space. Even though I walk through fields of flowers every day, I still find their presence in my house so soothing, life-affirming, and ultimately grounding. They are a reminder that there is beauty in every moment, no matter how fleeting, and that I can stop, drink it in, and replenish myself. So the challenge I extend to you is, how will you say "yes" to yourself? If you do begin to incorporate time and treats for yourself, I hope you also observe what kind of impact they have on you. It is nothing short of life-changing, I can assure you.
