We can’t deny that the COVID-19 pandemic has taught all of us a lot of lessons, and some of them are actually positive.
Flowers not only brighten our homes but support positive mental health. They’re the perfect way to let those we’re unable to seen in person know that we’re thinking of them. And buying domestically grown cut flowers and greens support hardworking American farmers and their families.
In other words, flowers and greens are essential!
In the course of the pandemic, we’ve also learned that there are some things that simply must happen in person. Among those is the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour.
With the health and safety of our guests at the forefront, we’ve determined that we must cancel the 2020 tour. We greatly value the in-real-life connection and intimacy of the dinners, and we just can’t see a virtual or socially distanced event having the same impact.
The good news: We plan to bring the tour back in 2021, getting as many flower lovers as possible to some of America’s most beautiful cut flower farms to learn from farmers, meet a renowned floral designer, enjoy a gourmet meal and connect to America’s agricultural heritage.
We are grateful for the 2020 Field to Vase sponsors who repurposed their funds to help support Certified American Grown. Those fantastic companies who generously support the floral industry are Ball Horticultural Co., B-Fresh Floral, Dramm & Echter Farms and Continental Floral Greens.
This will ensure that we can continue to host our amazing F2V dinners. Please stay tuned as we plan the 2021 American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour! We can’t wait to see you in person on an American flower farm!
