The North Bay Flower Collective is an alliance of flower growers and floral designers in the North San Francisco Bay Area with a fierce dedication to the slow flowers movement. We are champions of locally grown flowers and sustainable design, lovers of the natural world, community, and generosity. As flower farmers and floral designers, we share resources, support, and educational opportunities while implementing environmentally and socially responsible practices to build a thriving floral economy. Our mission is to work together to build a strong and beautiful alliance where locally grown flowers are celebrated and each member can grow and thrive.
As a collective, we aim:
- To value cooperation over competition.
- To be environmentally and socially responsible business people.
- To provide our collective with educational and enrichment opportunities.
- To work together to ensure economic viability within our flower collective.
- To pay dues to the collective for providing us with educational, marketing and business opportunities and resources.
