Making Good Things Bloom
Here's the first guest post of the week, this one from Inspired Protagonist Christina Frutiger of Gig Harbor, Washington...
Everyone loves a bouquet but the flower industry is a very toxic one, to say the least. They are mostly grown in third world countries like Ecuador with little or no regulations in regards to the tons and tons of chemicals used, creating many health problems for their workers and then shipped thousands of miles... you get the picture.
I love flowers and am an avid organic gardener, so I decided to...one...get rid of my lawn and turn it into a flower garden and...two...offer my beautiful organic bouquets for sale to local friends, restaurants and businesses in my area. I use no pesticides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizers, so you could also eat them, if you wanted to! You can see my bouquets in Gig Harbor, Washington where I live.
