The floral industry has a bad environmental track record. The 'slow flower' movement aims to change that - The Globe and Mail
Prairie Girl Flowers. “I had worked in the industry for 20 years – in landscape design and as a horticultural therapist at the Alberta Children’s Hospital – and when I found out [the flowers] were all imported it just blew me away. I felt so stupid. “At that point, I realized that the flower industry – as we know it – was unsustainable so I decided to grow my own, make sure everything I used was recyclable, and do my part to enact change.” Feasby is one of the growing number of eco-conscious petal pushers who have joined the “slow flower” movement, an initiative – akin to the slow food movement – that encourages people to buy in-season flowers from small growers in their area. “Floristry is big business worldwide and it’s hard to get people to rethink their ways,” says Natasa Kajganic, a member of the team behind Canadian Flowers Week, a week-long celebration of all things home-grown. “But in the last couple of years we’ve made progress. People are realizing there is a tremendous amount of waste in our industry and buying local is a healthier option for all of us.” The flower trade – which is estimated to be worth more than US$100-billion globally a year – has a miserable ethical and environmental track record. Heather Saunders Photography/Handout Last year, organizers of the first annual Canadian Flowers Week came up with innovative ways to grab peoples’ attention, wowing them with blooms in unexpected places. One group decorated the entry of Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel with a lavish spray of hydrangea, gladiolas, roses and more. On Salt Spring Island in B.C., environmental artist Ingrid Koivukangas created a giant sunflower spiral on her 10-acre flower farm and in Nelson, B.C., two women transformed an alleyway into a floral/foraged retreat.

'Floristry is big business worldwide and it’s hard to get people to rethink their ways,' says Natasa Kajganic, a member of the team behind Canadian Flowers Week. Prairie Girl Flowers Kistner used everything from blackberries, broom corn, wheat, amaranth, dahlias, grasses and chestnut pods in the installation. “Most of them don’t realize the v... Mar 29, 2019

Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveries
An Alberta man who, on the advice of doctors, is trying to keep news of his father's death from his dementia-stricken mother, is the latest grieving family member to complain about a new website that reposts online obituaries alongside ads for flower deliveries.
His fear is that a bouquet and card will show up on his mother's doorstep, and thus interrupt the delicate balance of what she knows about her husband, what she is capable of understanding through her dementia, and how it will affect her.
"I can handle it if she hears it from me," Rick Laursen said. But finding out from a delivery would be needlessly traumatic. He has now put a sign on her front door directing any flower deliveries to a neighbour's house.

Our Town: Solar flower power more than a cute art installation
Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, China and the U.S. harness the sun to a degree that Canada hasn't yet come close to. To boot, Alberta, despite being the sunniest place in the country, is a laggard nationally. If you ask Armstrong, however, he'll tell you that's about to change-and fast.RelatedBusiness is booming for his company, Longday Solar, and, he says, for other local specialists. "We're the new hub for solar," he says. "Calgary has the most sun after Medicine Hat, and people are starting to realize that if you want it, now's the time."Indeed, there are currently several provincial incentives on offer (solar.efficiencyalberta.ca), including for residences, commercial properties and Indigenous communities. Homeowners, for instance, can now receive up to 30 per cent off solar-panel installation costs, to a maximum of $10,000.So what? Well, simply put, a solarized house means that whatever energy you consume during the day while the panels are producing energy, is all yours. What you don't use goes to the grid and gets credited to your account. (Note that when the panels are not generating electricity and you need to access the grid, a charge for distribution and transmission applies; as Armstrong puts it, "ideally, you want to do laundry while the sun shines.") A solar system for the average house in Calgary is a $20,000 investment, but for the next couple of years, anyway, the province will kick in 30 per cent. "That means a lot of people can pay it off within 10 years, and have 20 years of free electricity-just when rates are expected to be really high," says Armstrong, adding that, in a way, "it's like getting free money from the government."Turns out there is still something new under the sun.
