Join Us in Supporting America’s Flower Farmers

Hardworking American flower farmers who grow some of the highest quality and most beautiful flowers and foliage need your support.  Pssst … helping takes just a few seconds!

 

The American Grown Act, a new act introduced in Congress, would require that all flowers and greens purchased by the federal government for events, memorials, displays at national cemeteries and day-to-day flowers at the White House come from American flower farms.

Makes sense, right?

That’s why we’re asking all floral designers, wholesalers and retailers (and taxpayers!) to add their names to our growing list of supporters of H.R. 3019 American Grown Act.

The act, introduced by Alaska Congressman Don Young, also a member of the Congressional Cut Flowers Caucus, enforces something we think the entire floral community can get behind – requiring the federal government buy American Grown Flowers for use in its facilities.

Bottom line: It’s the right thing to do.

If you agree, we’d appreciate you adding your name to our growing list of supporters.

Just sign on and start spreading the word to your colleagues and friends!

America’s flower and foliage farmers matter. Origin matters. Your voice matters.
