Owners of Pistel & Stamen in the garden

Today we’re visiting with Megan McHugh (r) & Denise Richter (l), co-founders of Pistil & Stamen in New Orleans, Louisiana to discuss:

  • their transition from school garden teachers to full-time flower business owners
  • how their complex business model helped keep their business afloat during the pandemic
  • how they’ve built a strong partnership rooted in recognizing one another’s strengths
  • their journey over the years from developing urban gardens on city lots to a new flower farm opportunity
  • confidence and fear — and how they play into decision making both in life and at Pistil & Stamen
