I am completely blown away at Debra Prinizing's new project, The Slow Flower Podcast. I'm currently listening to her and Sarah Rhyanen's chat about her farm The World's End. (That's her with her partner Eric and their dog Nea)
Im particularly happy they addressed not always buying local as that is something that Erica and I were just discussing last night. What is the happy medium of buying local vs completing your design with that perfect "thing" as Sarah says. It's hard not to buy tropical flowers when it's pretty easy to jump on a plane to Maui (just got back this week from Hawaii).
Anywhoo, I was so engrossed in listening to the witty coverage of Cooking with Flowers that I accidentally did all the dishes, and swept all the floors...
What will happen to you?

Thanks for the shout-out, Whitney~ I am so glad you love the interviews! In less than 3 months we've had 1,300 downloads of the Slow Flowers Podcast, which I think is pretty amazing! It means more people are joining the conversation about local flowers - and your support means a lot! xo debra
