Sustainable Floral Design

Sustainable Floral Design

I'm a Sustainable Floristry Network Ambassador! Well, I feel like I have been for some time (maybe since I started Gorgeous and Green and was looking to see how other florists were being sustainable, which was very difficult at the time and I mostly had to create my own methods of doing business)
I'm included in a lineup of wonderful people around the world trying to do their art and work in the most sustainable way they can, and sharing their process along the way.  
Here's just a few of us:
Pilar Zuniga and other Sustainable Floristry Ambassadors
Sue McLeary, Toby Nelson and other SFN Ambassadors
Now we have a lot more language to use to describe this way of doing business and designing, from being "sustainable" to "eco-friendly" to "slow flowers" "local grown" and "ethical business practices".  There is a lot we are doing and varying ways we are doing it, but most of the premise is the same, we are taking into account our actions as businesses and business people, and the ramifications of our purchases, our relationships, who we are supporting, who we've forgotten, how we've gotten here, and the physical effects our trash CO2 and other by-products of our work that are having an effect on the planet, it's people and animals.

Last Fall in Oakland

Small Fall Pandemic Wedding in 2020 was not just sweet but gloriously beautiful and heartfelt with jewel tone drama and lively floral design.

local and seasonal

Just a quick post to show you some colorful photos of some bouquets I created for a wedding last year.  Love the dark purples and the seasonal amaranth.  Local kale, gerberas, amaranth, stock, local hydrangea and eucalyptus.  Guess what time of year it was... Photos by Cara Mia Photography.
