HOW?

We grow seasonal flowers WITHOUT synthetic chemicals using veganic practices!

WHY?

Flowers are a labor of love for us…they attract beneficial bugs and pollinators and bring beauty and joy to our farm. When you buy local flowers it means you are supporting your community and your environment. Most grocery store flowers are imported and are grown overseas, that means that they travel long distances and this has a huge impact on our environment, not to mention the quality of the flower. These flowers are also often grown using harsh chemicals, synthetic pesticides, fungicides and herbicides that not only affect the earth but also those that are working under poor labor conditions.

Because we grow our flowers using the same principles that we have for growing our produce they are safe for you and your families to enjoy. We are humbled to be stewards of Eastward Gardens and rejoice in the pleasure of growing clean, fresh and sustainable flowers for our community.

WHERE?
