Nice post! I think many florists are now trying to make more of an effort to support local growers and farming in general. It is very important to me to know that the farming is done in a sustainable manner, without harming the environment or endangering workers health. The impractical side of the 50 mile bouquet concept, is that in some places in the country ( like Seattle ) not much grows in the winter. It can be done, but it requires consumers to be more flexible with their choices. As consumers we’ve been trained to want what we want, and get it when we want it. One only needs to take a look at the grocery store to see how much produce is available that isn’t grown locally or in season even in this country. The change is happening, and it’s exciting news for local farmers! Thanks for taking the time to educate us all on the subject.
