Buy Local Flowers
Have you ever contemplated the carbon footprint of cut flowers? What about flower growing methods or harvesting ethics? Thanks to the Washington Flowers Project at the Bellingham Farmer's Market this past weekend, we are much more aware. The Washington Flower Project works to educate farmers, sellers and consumers by providing support, resources and educational outreach (link below).
So Buy Local Flowers!
Some of our favorite Washington flower growers include Joe's Garden in Bellingham, WA, https://www.joesgardens.com/ and Springboard Farm in Tacoma http://springboardfarm.com/. Both farms are hyper-local and are run by wonderful farmers who truly care about growing sustainable food and flowers.
