​The Value of Your Slowflowers.com Membership
Welcome to August!
We SLOW FLOWERS Folks sure know how to make the most of this season's best botanical ingredients. You inspire me and help focus my energy promoting American grown flowers.
I know each of you is working tirelessly to farm and design -- and to sustain our domestic floral industry! Here's to you!
I hope the information shared in this month's newsletter is useful and thought-provoking, Warmly, Debra

See You in Colorado!
Slow Flowers Members Come Together at
Two Rocky Mountain Events
On Saturday August 13th, we'll gather at The Fresh Herb Co., a beautiful Rocky Mountain flower and herb farm, to dine al fresco alongside the bucolic, tree-lined Lefthand Creek. Tickets are still available and I'd love to see you! 
Two featured florists -- both Slowflowers.com members -- will transform the tables from ordinary to extraordinary using only Colorado-grown flowers. We're excited to see what Robyn Rissman of Bare Root Flora and Alicia Schwede of Bella Fiore and Flirty Fleurs create for the evening's centerpieces.
This is not the first collaboration between the two talented designers. Alicia, a former Colorado-based florist who is now located in the Seattle area, and longtime Colorado florist Robyn, also partner as co-editors of the Flirty Fleurs magazine.

Red Daisy Farm will provide the meat and guests are asked to please bring a side dish to share and drinks to contribute. 
Please contact Megan at reddaisyfarm@gmail.com for more details and RSVP by August 6th, so she knows how many people to prepare for! Please help spread the word! Should be a great experience and I'm eager to meet you!
