SLOW FLOWERS ANNOUNCES 144 New Members from 40 states and 4 Canadian provinces


Debra Prinzing, Slow Flowers founder and creative director, announced 144 new members have joined Slow Flowers Society during the first half of 2020. "We've seen consistent growth in membership and member renewals month over month," she says, attributing increased engagement in the Slow Flowers Society to a heightened awareness of the domestic floral supply chain and floral professionals' desire to participate in Slow Flowers' unique branding platform, promotional opportunities and editorial content across multiple media channels.

 

Slow Flowers is an inclusive community 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. More than 750 members across the U.S. and Canada are engaged in all facets of the floral marketplace. The Slow Flowers Movement began in 2013 with the publication of Prinzing's book Slow Flowers and has continued grow as a grassroots campaign involving florists, flower farmers and growers, gardeners and flower lovers.
