This week myself and 6 other fellow florists and flower farmers from all around New Zealand got together for a conversation about sustainable floristry, what that looks like to each of us and what we can do to improve the situation going forward.

Flower Farmers and Businesswomen Julie from The Pickery and Christy from Nourish Gardens cobbled us green misfits together and it's a really great listen if I do say so myself.
From growing practices to production waste, how to make positive changes in the floral industry, to other aspects of business sustainability such as avoiding burnout and ensuring profitability - it's got it all.
Join us for the free webinar to discuss what sustainability looks like in the floral industry, not just for weddings, but all events and occasions.

We've already had an overwhelming response from people saying how inspirational it was to listen to, and that to many it had re-ignited a fire and motivation long gone due to the fact that it's SO BLOODY HARD to be sustainable in this industry.
But we soldier on :)
We'd love to hear what you think - flick a message though with your thoughts.
