Local Flowers Biggest Fan
Debra is Local American Grown Flower's Biggest FAN!! I've thoroughly enjoyed the interviews so far. Learned of so many new farms and flower associations! A definite must if you are in the floral industry.
Love the casual apprach to the interviews. What better way to get aquanted with our local flower growers and designers.
Inspiration for the field and studio!
As a farmer florist, I love listening to the podcast each week. I know that no matter who that week's guest is (world class florist or small town farmer), I am going to hear about their perspectives, struggles, successes and upcoming projects and, undoubtedly, I will learn something that relates to my business. I always am left feeling inspired and hopeful about our industry and already looking forward to the next week's episode!
