Pam Stenger keeps memories of her grandmother’s flower garden alive by offering floral bouquets through a Community Supported Agriculture subscription service.
As a child, Stenger loved walking to her grandmother’s house and garden and seeing the 50-60 varieties of daffodils lining the gravel road. “She shared her love of flowers with me and showed me the joy that comes with giving flowers to others,” says Stenger, who is the president of the Missouri Master Gardener chapter for Macon and Shelby counties.
When Stenger worked as a loan administration specialist at Macon-Atlanta State Bank (now MA Bank) in Macon, she placed bouquets from her garden in the lobby. Coworkers and customers began asking about buying the bouquets.
