Farm Fresh Cut Flowers!
2017 – Please email us for information about flowers for this year.
Support Local! Check out the North Bay Flower Collective. Glad to be part of a group of flower farmers and floral designers in the North San Francisco Bay Area who aim to lean on each other for support and pull our resources together to build a flower growers alliance – helping each farmer and florist to grow and thrive.
And this is super- Slow Flowers by Debra Prinzing. A nationwide online directory to florists, shops, and studios who design with American-grown flowers. Debra is an energetic and leading advocate for American grown flowers. Through her many Slow Flowers-branded projects, she has convened a national conversation that stimulates consumers and professionals alike to make conscious choices about their floral purchases. Each Wednesday, you can listen to Debra’s “Slow Flowers Podcast,” available for free downloads at her web site debraprinzing.com. Here are 3 episodes from when Debra graced the NBFC with her presence in March of this year. 241 Sonoma Flower Mart Brings Slow Flowers to California’s Wine Country , 242 North Bay Flower Collective, a Progressive Farmer-Florist Community, 245 A Strong and Beautiful Alliance, 248 Cooperation over Competition.
Why chose local blooms? Most people don’t think of flowers in the same terms as they think of their edible produce, but the majority of flowers come from great distances and are treated with a variety of chemicals in order to make the long journey to your doorstep. We are fortunate to live in an area with many local and seasonal options for floral delights to brighten our lives. Choosing to buy fresh cut flowers from your local flower farmer is the sustainable choice, whether it’s for a weekly arrangements, or a one time engagement.
