The Sustainable Flowers Podcast:

A conversation about sustainable cut flower growing and designing between two passionate Canadian  growers trying to figure it out.

Heather and Clara grow cut flowers for market on the northern edge of the Canadian Prairies.  In this podcast they discuss the issues they face and alternatives to conventional approaches that they are putting into practice or are trialing to ensure that their small-scale flower farming operations are sustainable. Looking to the past and to new technologies to learn the whys and hows, they discuss everything from peat to floral foam, Antirrhinum to Zinnias as well as their weekly adventures on their Zones 2 and 3 flower farms.

For those of us on the prairies our dahlia tubers are all dug and packed away, so we are a bit late publishing this episode- but hopefully it is helpful for you for next year!  

In this episode we chat about methods we have tried, storage  issues unique to prairie (arid climate) growers,  and what we are currently doing.  

Like last week, no field notes this week as our brilliant audio editor is still away, but next week we will be back to field notes at the end of the regular podcast. 

Our theme music was composed and performed by Heather's son Callum and audio editing was completed by the uber talented Laura Eccleston.
