Organic Flower Production / La producción orgánica de flores

Flowers are one of the most profitable crops in agriculture. The demand for organically grown flowers is ever increasing. This session will feature two women who are really making a mark in the flower field. They will discuss varieties, sources, propagation, harvest and post-harvest management, arrangements, bouquets, pricing, marketing, pest and disease management, crop rotations, weddings, and how to make your flower project a success. Joanna Letz of Bluma Farm grows her flowers at the Sunol Ag Park and sells at San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza farmers market. Courtney Mellblom has created a unique niche in the San Luis Obispo area, taking small flower production to the next level with networking, strategic pricing, and community involvement.
