Everything you need to know about the benefits of locally grown flowers for your Wedding Day
Choosing Local Sustainable Flowers for Your Wedding Flowers
Are you an engaged couple planning a wedding during the summer months in Calgary and looking to use locally grown-flowers?
If so, you're in luck. As a Calgary-based wedding florist, Small Flower is passionate about sourcing our flowers locally, whenever possible, from sustainable flower farms. Not only does this ensure the blooms are responsibly grown, but it also guarantees the highest possible quality for your special day. Here are our top four reasons locally-grown flowers are more sustainable than imported blooms.
First of all, local flower farms minimize the need for transportation and emissions from long-distance shipping. Sourcing your flowers closer to home will reduce your carbon footprint while ensuring your blooms arrive fresh and vibrant for your wedding day. Supporting local growers has many benefits for our community and the planet!
Secondly, shopping locally has economic benefits too! Purchasing flowers from local growers supports nearby business owners, many female-run and operated. You are supporting our local agricultural communities, creating jobs and growth opportunities for those living in our area.
Additionally, these local growers are growing unique heirloom blooms that would otherwise not likely be available because of their delicate nature. These flowers are unique, rare and magnificent. Our local growers are passionate about their work and pride themselves in offering top-quality blooms. Local flowers often have longer vase life as they're freshly picked from the fields near your event location.
So why not choose local for your next big event? You won't be disappointed.
