Emily Vergara - The Little Local Posy
Emily Vergara

We recently caught up with local Taree florist, Emily Vergara to learn all about how her local flower posy brand, The Little Local Posy, which was born in the middle of the COVID 19 pandemic. It was inspiring to hear her journey and how she has been drawn back to her home town to provide a local service to local people using local flowers.  Emily’s business ethos really aligns well with the Jack & Co brand and we are delighted to stock her blooms at our Taree West store.

Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy our Meet the Maker story with Emily Vergara.

How did you get started in floristry?

 

I’ve always loved flowers and wanted to be a florist as a small child, but didn’t really consider it to be an actual job. After finishing high school, I moved to Sydney and worked in a law firm, graduated from Business College and studied fashion at the National Art School in Darlinghurt.

Funnily enough, the highlight of my days walking the inner-city streets, was passing by the bustling florists and admiring the opulent floral arrangements that would bring life to stark marble clad foyers. However, it wasn’t until many years later, back home in Taree after having and caring for my 4 babies, that I began to consider options that would allow me to work from home and to be available for my kids, have a creative outlet and an income.
