The Little Bean company came to life when Charlotte Alexander noticed that many people took a particular interest in gardening and yard improvement during the pandemic. Having done woodworking in the past, building garden planters from new and recycled wood was what she is focusing on. Combining her creativity, interest in building items made from wood, and interest in sustainability, she has been creating unique planters for her growing customer base.
“The highlight of my business has been to see my clients’ reaction when they pick up their planters made by a 17-year-old female entrepreneur. The Summer Company program provided me not only with the ability to start up my business in terms of costs but also with the knowledge required in this industry. Through workshops with a variety of individuals, who each had something unique to share, and the experience of starting my own business, I’ve definitely learned more than I was expecting to.”
