Slow Flowers in the News: Alberta Views

Bringing Back the Alberta Bouquet: Growing interest in slow flowers

Growers in Alberta are carving a niche in the traditional market with their seasonal "slow flowers"

We're so grateful for our friendship with B.C.-based environmental journalist Adrienne Mason. For last year's Slow Flowers Summit, Adrienne profiled all of our speakers, writing engaging, insightful features about flower farmers, floral designers, and sustainability leaders.

This year, knowing that the Slow Flowers Summit was heading to the province of Alberta, Adrienne pitched a feature story to the editors of Alberta Views -- and they obviously loved her idea, because the magazine has just published "Bringing Back the Alberta Bouquet," Adrienne's love letter to local flowers.

The story appears in the July-August 2024 issue of Alberta Views, available on newsstands across Alberta. Check it out and snag your own copy while you're visiting Banff!

Congratulations to Adrienne and a heartfelt thanks for the care and attention you brought to this story.

A bonus . . . several of our Slow Flowers Summit speakers are quoted in the piece, including Heather Henson, Moira MacKinnon, and Becky Feasby. Slow Flowers Society member Kristen Primrose is also quoted in the piece. The pages are included here and you can read the full story in the link below.
