Local. Sustainable. Slow flowers. These are more than just buzz words, they represent the philosophy behind the growing movement of localizing the flower industry. Plain and simple: flowers that are sold stateside should be grown domestically to support the local economy and our local agricultural communities. That’s why we’re calling it the Local Flower Movement.
Our domestic flower farmer directory features U.S. growers who plant seasonal blooms; practice organic and sustainable farming methods; utilize techniques to eliminate waste; and put their workers’ safety first. Why buy imported florals when you can support a local flower farmer? Join the Local Flower Movement by supporting a grower near you.
Did you know that your flowers probably have logged more frequent flyer miles than you? Or, how about that over half of domestic flower farmers have gone out of business since 1992? Or that you're probably being exposed to known carcinogens by buying that beautiful rose from the supermarket?! The stats are shocking, and hard to find, so we’re bring them to you right here on Field to Vase.
