CONNECTING PEOPLE TO THEIR FLOWERS
& TO THE FARMERS WHO GROW THEM
The multi-billion dollar floral industry shows an estimated 80% of our flowers are imported. Mass flower producers from outside North America ship flowers over long distances, which are grown with chemicals and pesticides. There are currently no regulations on the amount of pesticide use for the international flower market, only that they must enter the country pest free. Not only are pesticides toxic to any living thing, but the heavy carbon footprint left behind to transport flowers, negatively impacts the environment.
Buying local flowers connects consumers to the flower grower and to their flowers. Locally grown cut flowers are food for the soul, just like locally grown produce is food for the body.
Supporting local flower farmers who grow cut flowers with sustainable farming practices, helps to support the environment and the local economy. By purchasing locally grown flowers you are making an eco-conscious choice that not only gives you comfort of knowing where and how your flowers are grown but also beautiful, fresh, long lasting blooms!
