2013 farm tour series continues this weekend in Franklin County

Join Steve and Gretel Adams for a tour of their seven acre urban flower farm only six miles from downtown Columbus, to learn about growing flowers sustainably and intensively. Steve and Gretel specialize in mixed bouquets, offering central Ohioans an alternative to flowers grown with pesticides and shipped across the globe. They produce blooms for seven grocery stores, four farmers' markets, florists, weddings, and special events.

"Flowers that are flown in from around the equator may be cheap, but they do not have the same chemical restrictions or workers rights. Buying local, sustainable flowers means that you are promoting a system that is safe not only for employees, but for you as a consumer," said Gretel. "Plus, our flowers are harvested fresh to order—picked just before they are put into our bouquets—which means they can bring a smile to your face for at least a week in the vase."
