Wondering what’s on our minds when we’re not selling great local food or meeting with new producers? Following up on our look at the Slow Food movement in our last newsletter, we want to talk about the Slow Flower Society. Members of this group are “dedicated to preserving domestic flower farms and supporting a floral industry that relies on a safe, seasonal and local supply of sustainably-farmed flowers and foliage.” Flower farming, like every type of sustainable farming, should be done in a way that maintains soil and human health.
One of our latest producers, Laura Arbuckle of Arbuckle Flower Farm, is part of the slow flower movement and even upcycles vases for her sustainably-grown and unique bouquets.
Coming soon!! Recipes using all of the fresh delicious and locally grown ingredients of the season!!
