Ask for Locally-Grown Flowers
The biggest way we can help our local flower growers is by increasing demand for locally-grown flowers. If you would like to be a part of the Washington Flowers movement, next time you are in a situation you are buying flowers, ask if they offer locally-grown flowers.
Search for the Washington Flower Labels
IF you are a retailer or wholesaler of cut flowers, more growers want to hear from you, and consumers want to support local farmers! Participating in the Washington Flowers movement is easy. Next time you are buying flowers look for and always ask for locally-grown, WA flowers.
Use the Hashtags for Washington Flowers
All of the producers, growers, and consumers will be taking to social media to increase awareness of our mission. We will be utilizing hashtags to categorize our posts. These are the following hashtags we recommend using in your posts.
