My Slow Flowers Podcast with Debra Prinzing

February has been cold, wet and snowy here in New England. Just the kind of weather I like to get down and dirty on clarifying my goals for the upcoming growing season. I'm so excited to get started in the gardens again. There's plenty of cleanup to do and planting lists to complete. The good news is that we are about 10 - 12 weeks away from being able to sow seeds outdoors. To keep busy I've been networking and making plans with my flower peeps from near and far to keep me blooming on the inside until planting time!

Debra Prinzing 
Last week one of my dreams came true when I sat down for a Skype interview with Debra Prinzing, ( author and founder of the Slow Flowers Movement). You may recall my interview with Debra here in February, 2016.  If you haven't tuned in to Debra's podcasts you should really put it on your calendar to have a listen. Whether you're a hobby gardener, master gardener, budding flower farmer/floral designer you'll learn first hand what's happening in the changing floral landscape around the cut flower industry in America. It's revolutionary on every level.



Debra asked me about my brand, and my writing, my cut flower gardens and floral designs and she was especially interested in sharing with her listeners some exciting news about an event I am co-hosting with three other farmer/florists in Massachusetts in March. The New England Farm and Floral Meet and Greet in MA.


I founded the New England Farmer Florist Connection Facebook Group in March of 2016 with the idea that farmer/florists in the New England region needed a place to connect and share their growing experiences online. In the back of my mind, ( okay, not so much in the back) I also dreamt that one day we might meet in person to network and find new ways to help one another in our farm and floral endeavors.


It's happening!!! On March 25th, Flower Farmers and Floral designers are traveling from Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts to meet face to face and I couldn't be more thrilled that my instincts were right.

 I'll introduce my talented co-hosts in an upcoming blog post and share more about our dream location for the event. In the meantime, please have a listen to my podcast with Debra Prinzing to learn more! Every episode is educational and inspiring as well as FREE! Stay tuned!


And, remember. Whatever you dream you can do, you CAN do!

Put down some roots and BLOOM!

Deb
