Temple flowers to make farms bloom
Bhatt said. “During discussions, we realized that the disposal of flowers, leaves, and coconuts was a major issue as religious sentiments were attached to them.” He said that the offerings were dumped in rivers or, on some occasions, disposed of along with other garbage. “We developed a machine which converts flowers into fertilizer,” he said. “We used several compressing machines available, but later developed our own machine.”
Thakkar said that they proposed to the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation to have the project initiated. “Corporation officials, including mayor Bijal Patel, helped us in the project,” he said. “We have been given the project for Bodakdev, Thaltej, Ghatlodia, Naranpura, and Navrangpura wards of the corporation.” The two are collecting garbage from 22 temples. “As a part of the project, we gave individual bins to the temples,” he said.
The two said that they are at present selling the fertilizer at Rs 60 per kg. “Once the project is extended for the entire city, we plan to make incense sticks and rose water which will be sold under a registered brand name,” Thakkar said. “Coconuts will be converted into cocopits.”
Bhatt said that they got a grant of Rs 95,000 from the GTU innovation council for the project. The machine converts flowers, leaves, and coconuts into fertilizer within 15 days. Bhatt said that they plan to involve the Sakhi mandals to sell the products.

Not a rosy affair, but flowers bloom
Mobidique, Ammi, Arabicum, Cubarol, Ryngium, Allium, Claspedia, Mollucella, Scaboisa, Agapanthus, Ornis and lilies, a majority which are used in blending roses.Blue Agapanthus, according to Florence, has been doing well in the European market.Claspedia gets high demand during Mother’s Day celebration and is also used when making bouquets. The small headed yellow flower has shelf-life of one month. “We have favourable temperature and humidity in western to help in fast maturity of the flowers. You don’t need greenhouses or shade nets to plant them,” says Florence.CLIMATE FAVOURS FAST MATURITYSummer flowers grow better in well-drained soils. The seedlings are planted at a spacing of 30cm by 60cm. She advises farmers to use organic manure, which retains moisture and helps in solving the acidity of the soil.One advantage that farmers in the region have is the high temperatures that favour fast-maturity of summer flowers. The flowers mature in three months and are ready for export.“We planted the Celosia flowers on May 17 on the demo farms, and they are now flowering in full bloom,” she says.She asked farmers to invest in irrigations systems to have continuous supply of water for the flowers.“It is essential to have uniform growth of the flower stalks. This calls for enough water supply. The longer the flower stalk, the better the quality.” Success of floriculture, according to her, begins with securing the market before planting the flowers on the field.“The best approach is finding the buyer first in a system where you sell before you produce. Often the buyer will guide you on the right propagation for the flower depending on the end market,” says Florence.“Every exporter has his own desired variety that suits the market demand. Usually, the farmer receives seeds, and chemicals on credit. So that by the time they start harvesting, the farmer pays back for the inputs,” she adds.Florence says buyers like Wilmar Flowers are already interested in the venture. “Ours is to link farmers with buyers and make sure that they are protected from rogue buyers who exploit them.” The farmer and the buyer must have a contract. The contract entails the mode of business, if the buyer provides seeds, chemicals and ot... (t a rosy affair, but flowers bloom)Sep 10, 2018

Macys Day Parade on the West Coast Rose Parade CEO says change is coming (but it doesnt involve balloons)
That system will remain the same for the vast majority of floats this year. But for the first time, the tournament has assigned two or three float contracts to builder AES.
Eads said the move ensures there will be enough floats for the admission-paying public to watch floats being decorated at the Rosemont Pavilion in Pasadena.
“It’s my belief that we need to have a stronger relationship with the float participant,” he said. “Floats are being constructed in the same manner, the same guidelines are being used to build our floats. But it’s more just our relationship with the entities that are in the parade. Our goal is to build long-term relationships.”
But some worry what that might mean for the creative traditions of the parade.
Neither representatives from AES, nor those from the other two companies: Phoenix Decorating Company or Fiesta Parade Floats, returned requests for comment.
A fourth company, Paradiso Parade Floats, ended its relationship with the Rose Parade earlier this year after a contract dispute that indicated “the tournament’s priorities and Paradiso’s vision for the future do not align,” owner Charles Meier wrote in a February Facebook post. Reached for comment, he declined to elaborate.
Midyett said people in his industry worry that float priorities could shift if this change-in-relationship is expanded across the board.
“If the tournament is the general contractor, they have the ability to introduce designs that are not emphasizing floral, but emphasizing entertainment,” he said.
Eads countered that “self-builds” — floats designed and constructed not by professional builders but by city sponsors, such as Sierra Madre, La Cañada Flintridge and South Pasadena — will continue.
‘Assembled in silos’
A former Macy’s executive, Amy Kule, was brought on to lead the newly created Parade Development Office. Eads said the reorganization of the tournament’s hierarchy allows for better collaboration, planning and strategy between the 935 tournament volunteers who work year-round in 31 specialized committees.
“When all the different elements were being assembled in silos, it all came together in the end, and what we had was what we had,” he said. “Now we’re trying to strategically say, ‘What do we want this parade to look like?’”
Among the considerations are things like the ratio of commercial to noncommercial floats, the total number of floats (there’s usually about 45) and the number of equestrian units (usually around 20) and bands (another 20) compared to the number of floats.
Eads is sure about one thing though: He wants to create more long-lasting relationships with float sponsors. He points to Cal Poly Universities as an example. The public institutions have had a float in the parade for the last seven decades.
Typically each year, there are si... (039;Macy's Day Parade on the West Coast?' Rose Parade CEO says change is coming (but it do)Aug 17, 2018
