“What I love about the Slow Flowers Summit is that I get to connect with so many farmers, farmer florists and designers. I always learn a new technique or two that I quickly implement into my business and designs. The content, networking and of course the food is FABULOUS!”

“I loved being with and learning alongside other flower enthusiasts. Debra organized the event very well. She was welcoming to all attendees and encouraged connection. I am grateful to have gotten to attend.”

“The Slow Flowers Summit is completely unique in the floral educational landscape and stands for its ability to build the bridge between farmer, designers, and educators setting the trends in our industry.”

“The Slow Flowers Summit was one of those magical business events where the mechanism of commerce was certainly discussed but the environment, people and vibe were almost spiritual. Super valuable. Super fun. Good for the bottom line and the soul.”

“The 2023 Slow Flower Summit was encouraging, inspiring, and a wonderful opportunity to connect with other professionals doing beautiful work in the flower world … I can't wait for next year's Summit!”
