A Fresh Bouquet in the news and on the lecture circuit
What a nice surprise to discover a mention of this project in the January-February 2011 edition of HortIdeas, a popular gardening newsletter in its 26th year of publication. Thanks to Judy Lauschman of the Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers for pointing it out to us!
“Seasonal, Local, and Sustainable” Flower Production
That’s the theme of Debra Prinzing and David Perry’s web site www.the50milebouquet.com and their soon-to-be-published book titled A Fresh Bouquet. It certainly appears that developing viable alternatives to mass-produced floral crops is an idea whose time has arrived, and this site and book are at the forefront of activities in this area, gathering helpful ideas, technical information, and news from around the country.”
Thanks to HortIdeas editors Greg and Pat Williams for the encouraging words!
Upcoming: David and Debra are hitting the lecture circuit in 2011 – spreading the word about our passion for locally-grown flower crops and the designers who use these ingredients.
