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.

Feeling star-struck releasing this episode!  Heather had an amazing  conversation about designing without using floral foam with Lucy Hunter (The Flower Hunter) Max Gill (Max Gill Design) and Gabriela Salazar (La Musa de las Flores) and today we are sharing it, and our own conversation with you!

In this episode you will hear these three most thoughtful designers discuss:

  • some tips and tools they use for no-foam installations
  • the challenges of no-foam design 

Heather posed such great questions to them, their responses and discussion is thought-provoking and inspiring, we are sure you will come away motivated and informed!

 Our theme music was composed and performed by Heather's son Callum, and the challenging job of audio editing was completed by the brilliant Laura Eccleston.
