The Farmer’s Pledge
THE ROOTED PROMISE
As a small farmer, I am committed to minimizing the harmful impacts that my industry has on the environment. I recognize that internationally-sourced flowers carry with them a burden of a considerable carbon footprint, as well as staggering levels of environmentally compromising chemical additives. I do not participate in these practices.
I love compost.
I love worms, pollinators, and beneficial insects.
And I love water and work hard to conserve it.
Wherever possible, I avoid the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and preservatives and I sell my flowers within a local and regional radius of my farm. I am committed to maintaining these and other sustainable practices on my farm for the benefit of both our own ecosystem and the larger watershed of which I am a part.
