It's great to hear from local flower advocates
Debra continues to provide relevant and timely information on the growing momentum for American Grown flowers. As the CEO/Ambassador of the California Cut Flower Commission, I continue to support and monitor her efforts as a leading voice that encourages people to seek out more sustainable, locally grown, flowers.
This Slow Flowers podcast is an excellent weekly resource that provides an opportunity to hear her voice and the voices of others who want to see flowers become as local as the food we place on our table.
One of the best floral related podcasts out there! Debra brings on great guests and it is inspiring to hear everyone’s origin stories. The Slow Flowers movement is one of the utmost importance in today’s floral industry and I highly recommend taking a listen to get familiar if you aren’t already.
