“It’s kind of two different ways you can take it: more of a realistic, elegant way or more of a fun and cartoon-y way,” Toney said.

This year’s theme is “The Power of Hope,” and Toney and her team are creating an undersea landscape with a submarine floating above. How does their “Aquatic Aspirations” design tie into that? The idea is that seafarers are out hoping to spot some treasure, but end up finding the wonders of the natural world even more rewarding.
To make that concept believable, Toney said her team has been in constant contact with farmers throughout California as they choose the right flowers for the job — color, shape and seasonality all factor in.
And that’s just the logistical piece.

Once they pick out flowers, the team has to figure out how to arrange them in a way that quickly and clearly conveys the float’s message.
“You only have a few seconds for people to see your float, so it’s really critical to use things that allow people to understand what it is,” Toney said.
While Toney initially signed up for float club as a creative and social outlet, she’s also a business administration major who’s learning lessons that would play out in her future career — from working to secure the right flowers to ironing out any disputes that might come up.
It all takes a lot of ingenuity — and, at least this year, a lot of cleanup. Toney’s team is using tiny plastic vials to fill the float with green flowers, and each one will need cleaning. They’re also using upside-down floral arrangements to mimic the look of jellyfish, and — since natural materials are a must — coffee grounds to color a sunken ship.

At the end of it all, there’s nothing like seeing the final product with everyone else as it makes its way down Pasadena’s Colorado Boulevard, Toney said.

Stephen Behee: Kona’s self-taught plant expert - West Hawaii Today
His chronology of experience working with plants is stunning. He actually started as a kid, growing up in Southern California. He often worked with his mom in the family garden. His fascination with tropical plants also started early. He would save his milk money, walk to a plant nursery a mile away and buy tropical exotics.
Stephen’s early love of plants took him to many places and lots of different experiences, including Kona where he decided to settle.
His last job before leaving California for Kona was a four-year stint on a 340-acre property in the Sierras. The owner had restored steam locomotives and out buildings to their original specs from the late 1800s as a hobby. Stephen started working there as part of the large irrigation crew. Four years later he had become the landscape supervisor.
“The property was owned by Glen Bell of Taco Bell fame and was a fun place to work,” he said. “Part of the landscape included a hundred-year-old narrow gauge railroad that was used on the property.”
Stephen continued working in landscaping without stopping to get a degree. He proceeded to log years of experience making him a self-taught plant expert with a wider variety of plant knowledge than some of those with advanced degrees in horticultural sciences.
When they tired of the snow and the wet, cold weather in the Sierras, Stephen and his w... Jan 4, 2020
Green Unicorn Farms Launching Premium Hemp Flower Shop Online - Newswire
However, in some states, consumers can face difficulties in locating clean, quality CBD flowers. To remedy this, Green Unicorn Farms, a California based hemp curator, is pleased to announce the launch of its online premium hemp flower shop.
Green Unicorn Farms is dedicated to providing its customers with the most premium hemp flower available - which is why they’re dubbed the “Green Unicorns” of the hemp industry. Rich cannabinoid content combined with vivid terpene profiles offers a more effective and quality user experience, while third-party lab testing helps ensure safe, clean and reliable products. Their products are ideal for those looking for alternatives to standard CBD products.
Smokable hemp allows users to take full advantage of the benefits of CBD along with other naturally occurring compounds in the plant, "as nature intended". Their new online store features a variety of premium flowers that have been cultivated in different growing environments to provide customers with a choice of the best indoor, greenhouse, and sun-grown flower.
They only share what they believe is worth smoking and all of their products are accompanied by lab results that provide the buyer with the exact amounts of cannabinoids in each strain. Customers can filter and purchase the flower based on their desired CBD levels, terpenes and aromatics, growing environments, and whether they want pre-rolls or bagged-up flower.
With the unveiling of its new online store, the company is looking to expand beyond California. They also plan to update their stock regularly, to offer a wider selection of premium hemp flower curated from only the best hemp farmers in the U.S. They work carefully to... Jan 4, 2020
