Bloem (bluːm: the Dutch word for 'flower' or 'flowering plant') is a design studio and flower farm located on a third generation farm in Adjala-Tosorontio. Bloem focuses on seasonal and contemporary design, and works with product from their quarter acre cutting garden during Ontario's growing season of May to October. Bloem draws inspiration from the Slow Flower movement and strives to execute environmentally conscious design work from seed to finished product.
Susannah van der Zaag is a floral designer with a background in fashion photography and sculpture. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
