The online Fig calendar is a curated list of community and advertiser events happening in the Lehigh Valley.
The Lehigh Valley has its share of food trucks—but did you know we have our very own flower truck? Georgia’s Flower Truck first bloomed in 2019, a year after owner Kait Harrison was inspired by a similar business. “That’s it,” the Bethlehem native thought. “That’s for me!” She’d grown up loving nature, gardening alongside her mother, and this was a natural next adventure for the budding entrepreneur.
You’ll find the vintage green Volkswagen truck—originally from California, and most recently brought up from Georgia—at the Nazareth Farmer’s Market, the open truck sides flush with zinnias and sunflowers, for creating your own bouquets or choosing a single stem for a friend—or yourself! You can even book the truck for a private event, a wedding or a shower, or a unique company outing. “That,” says Kait, “is the beauty of having a business on wheels.” Georgia’s Flower Truck will also provide flowers for special events, and deliver their fresh bespoke creations across the Valley.
Now in her second year of business, Kait remains committed to providing a thoughtful human connection, always driven by her core values: minimalism, sustainability, and loving and supporting local. As often as possible, she sources her flowers from local gardeners and greenhouses (sometimes the zinnias are from her mother’s garden), hoping one day to grow on her own land. She’s grateful for the support, enthusiasm, and kindness she’s received from her customers and community—and the opportunities she’s had to get to know them, and to bring a little nourishing beauty into their day.
“Flowers certainly aren’t a need, but it means so much to people. Whether it’s adding a splash of color on a kitchen table or a thoughtful stem for a friend, it’s one of life’s simplest joys,” she says. “Life doesn’t have to be complicated. I remember that every time I’m with my flowers.”
