The Scorecard:

  • Biodiversity: How deeply are you rooted in using locally sourced or native flower varieties?
  • Soil Health: Are you tilling towards the future with soil health management practices? From cover cropping to raised beds, adding organic matter to your soil is an investment in your land's future.
  • Water: Is your irrigation system focused on efficiency, minimizing waste through innovative methods like drip irrigation?
  • Carbon Conscious: How green is your supply chain? Assessing the carbon footprint from seed to delivery can minimize the impact of your farm.
  • Shipping Impacts: The distance your flowers travel matters. Emphasizing local sales not only builds community bonds but also reduces emissions.
  • Pest Management: Are beneficial insects and microbial pesticides your allies in pest management?
  • Energy Efficiency: How are you shining a light on energy use - whether it's greenhouse heating or lighting.
  • Waste Management: Green waste composting turns yesterday's blooms into tomorrow's nutrients, closing the loop in your farming cycle.
  • Stewardship: Engaging in habitat restoration or pollinator-friendly projects sows seeds of sustainability beyond your farm's borders.
  • Keeping Track: Regular soil and water testing ensures that your fertilization practices don't tip the ecological balance.
