Sustainability and the Flower Industry with Brianna Bosch of Blossom and Branch Farm
In this episode, we explore the flower industry and the realities of its impact on the world, our soil, in your home, for workers, etc. Unfortunately, few regulations exist where most commercial flowers are grown. These highly chemically treated plants are then delivered to our grocery stores and the mass market in the US, eventually sitting right on our countertops. Brianna Bosch of Blossom and Branch Farm offers some great tips and advice, talks about renoavting her own growing space to be sustainable, growing flowers, and overall educates us on thinking beyond the red rose and flowers being available year-round.
