Flower growers can tap into Buy Local movement

“There is room for everyone in the Buy Local food movement. Even flower growers can get in the act”, states Dave Harrison in his ‘From the Editor’ in the trade magazine Greenhouse Canada. He quotes two leading US greenhouse managers: Mike Gooder of Plantpeddler and Jef Mast from Banner Greenhouses. They advise flower growers to fill in the seasonal gaps by locally grown veggies and alternative crops. It is according to them at least an opportunity that deserves to be considered.
“Buy Local gathers as a consumer-driven movement momentum. Both vegetable growers and flower producers can with the right amount of preparation and homework tap into it”, concludes Harrison.
