US (TX): SkyGardens hosts open flower farm nights

1 Min Read

This spring, SkyGardens in Levelland is opening its flower farm to visitors. It’s a special spot hidden among the dirt roads and cotton fields of the South Plains. Skyler Richardson, born into a farming legacy that spans generations, envisioned a different path for the plot of land once her family once dedicated to cotton cultivation.

“Sometimes I think, like, this is an actual flower farm, and I can’t believe we are actually here,” Richardson said. COVID-19 changed Richardson’s plans of going to law school. Instead, she prayed for guidance and found herself pursuing her passion for farming.

“As that was going on, I was planning on going to law school, and that couldn’t happen anymore, and I just kept on praying, ‘God, what is the next step?’ and ‘What is going to bring the most glory to you?’ and this is where we landed so here we are,” she said.

The roots of SkyGardens run deep, tracing back to Richardson’s great-grandparents, who chose the spot many years ago. While the fields no longer produce cotton, Richardson finds fulfillment in the work being done today.
