Local Flowers, Local Farmers: A Growing Movement

Local Flowers, Local Farmers: A Growing Movement

This short film beautifully illustrates the movement back to locally-grown cut flowers now gaining strength across the United States. With visits to members’ farms, and interviews with farmers, buyers, florists, and our own researcher John Dole, it clearly demonstrates the benefits of local over imported flowers.
