farm to floral program
Foreign floral imports dominate today's flower market and in some categories, foreign floral accounts for 90% or more of all U.S. sales. With California currently America's top cut flower producer and Florida a close second for flowers and foliage, many domestic growers are struggling to keep up with foreign competition.
The Issue with Foreign Floral: Foreign Floral often comes from growing fields where fair labor practices are not our industry standard. Imported flowers are fumigated at the border to pass through US customs, and even more chemicals are used to preserve them for their long journey. In order to combat many of the foreign floral issues Southern Grace has introduced our Farm to Floral Program.
Our clients choose the size of arrangement they would like, but not the actual flowers in the arrangements. We design an arrangement based on what is in season and blooming at the time. By allowing the Farm to Floral concept to guide your arrangement we can keep pricing down and reduce waste. Some example of our Farm to Floral arrangements by following the seasonal offerings locally are:
Another part that makes the Farm to Floral concept come to life if we try to use donated or recycled vases and materials. We use paper and burlap to wrap our bouquets and avoid floral foam and anything toxic or containing chemicals. We used recycled Sari ribbon or similar materials to tie bouquets Our goal is to reduce environmental impact while continuing to enjoy the floral that makes us smile and creates an experience.
