What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture and is quickly become a popular way for consumers to buy fresh, local, seasonal products directly from a grower in their community. CSAs support local economy, responsible agricultural practices, and reduce the waste, expense, and reliance on preservatives and pesticides associated with excessive shipping.
What is Fair Trade?
While fair trade resources may not be local, they perfectly compliment our mission to enjoy responsible sustainable agriculture. Fair trade supplies ensure that the flowers they cultivate are just as natural, organic, and ecologically sound as the ones we grow on our own farm, and what they lack in proximity they make up for by supporting the ethical treatment of people and economies in the local communities were the flowers are grown.
What are slow flowers and the slow movement?
The Slow Movement advocates a cultural shift toward slowing down life’s pace and embracing methods and systems that support whole systems. Changing our ideas of “efficiency,” which has long been synonymous with speed and volume, to now include more big picture and long term parameters for success such as the broad effects and long term success of a method. Slow flowers, like slow food and slow manufacturing, focus on trading quantity for quality and takes into consideration the long-lasting effects of production and consumption. “Fast flowers” are often grown in vast, pesticide-rich global mono-cultures and shipped worldwide at the expense of the environment, the local growers, and the product itself. Slow flowers are grown locally, hand cultivated, and sold fresh and in season to consumers who bolster the local economy. The most interesting thing about the slow movement? It’s not slow at all, in many cases it’s simpler and “faster,” but most importantly, it’s just the right speed for the best possible product.
