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.
It's great to hear from local flower advocates
American Farmer Advocate
Debra highlights the quality that is American Grown flowers. Her conversations with farmers or local flower advocates point out their authenticity, passion, and stewardship for the land. I look forward to each Slow Flowers episode.
