Presenter Bio – Aoife Donnan (EE-fa):

Hi! I’m Aoife (EE-fa) and run a small business out of my home called the Irish Flower Girl. I moved to Canada in 2021 and have moved from Kingston to Toronto in 2022. I began my business in Ireland making Christmas wreaths, but then discovered the art of making dried flower wreaths. The best thing about dried flower wreaths is their sustainability. Dried flower wreaths preserve the stunning color of flowers, but last far longer than any fresh flower bouquet or wreaths (sometimes years). I purchase my flowers from a wholesaler in Mississauga, but I hope to be able to grow my own one day. Currently I am selling on Etsy and Instagram.
