This is why all of those people have flowers on their heads at Arroyo Seco Weekend
Look no further than Mud Baron and the viral floral sensation #FlowersOnYourHead.•Related: These photos show you what it’s like to be at Arroyo Seco WeekendThe 47-year-old teacher at Pasadena’s John Muir High School incorporated the floral hair phenomenon into to his urban farm, Muir Ranch, about 3-4 years ago (the ranch itself, an “urban teaching farm and teen jobs program,” according to the organization’s website, began in 2011). And it all began by chance after a long afternoon that Baron spent at Los Angeles City Hall giving flowers away. After handing out flowers, he had a few buckets left of what he called “so-so” flowers left. He went to a non-profit called “We Can” in South Los Angeles and while handing the flowers to children - the height difference and seeing the flowers above the kid’s head made for an “Eureka!” moment for Baron. •Related:From creating smells to staring at a red tube, this is art at Arroyo Seco WeekendHe even compared the moment of discovery to the famous National Geographic image, you know the one (the Afghan refugee cover). “People and flowers look better together,” said Baron. “They both look better together.”Ever since that moment, Baron has been putting flowers on people’s head everywhere.

Muir Ranch gives students at Muir High a chance to flourish with flowers
Arroyo Seco Music Festival.Their wedding-flower business is also starting to thrive, due to the fact that flowers purchased from the program are tax-deductible. One satisfied customer on the wedding front is Hollie Loson, a Pasadena resident who had her flowers supplied by the Ranch for her 2014 wedding. She was so impressed by the results that this past January she joined the Ranch team as a part-time marketing advisor to help them expand their reach and orchestrated a special showcase for wedding industry professionals and event spaces at the school in April. “Over the last couple of years, they’ve been hired to do a lot of events and Mud was tapped out by all the hats he was wearing, so they took me on to sell packages for the students,” says Loson. “I have a history in sales, and I talk to the brides, we invite them to the Ranch, and they have a meeting with our lead student designer. We talk about their inspiration, look at photos and if they hire us, we execute whatever is in their floral package on the day of the wedding.” While the focus on flowers puts the students in contact with a broad array of local businesses and puts money in their pockets, the program has impacted one particular student in a much greater way. Manny Garcia started with the program in 2013, and found he enjoyed it so much that he became the lead floral designer. He continues to work with the program now, while studying general-education requirements at Pasadena City College en route to attending a landscape architecture program in Oregon that will be funded by one of the clients he impressed through his work on the Ranch. “I was getting in trouble regularly at school and was told I was failing and wasn’t going to graduate,” Garcia recalls. “I was referred to this agriculture class to get an easy A and boost my GPA, but I really liked it and Mud taught me everything I know. I like that this is peaceful, and lets me get away from the usual routine I have at home. I love how the flowers don’t talk back. It’s relaxing. Garcia also notes that the entrepreneurial aspects of the Ranch have proven invaluable. “The program helps students gain some knowledge of real-life applications rather than McDonald’s or Jack in the Box, where they’ll wind up working if they don’t pay attention in class,” says Garcia. “A lot of people say just start somewhere, but entrepreneurship really opens their eyes to see if they sink or swim or not. You learn by doing in the real world, and this is a place where they can do it.” ...May 7, 2017
Movement pushes local, American Grown flowers
Benno Dobbe, Dutch immigrant and owner of Holland America Flowers in Woodland since 1982, established a second location in Arroyo Grande, California in 1986. He serves as a board member of the California Cut Flower Commission (CCFC).“Most people in the U.S. do not know where their flowers are coming from,” Dobbe said. “Statistics indicate that 80 percent of all cut flowers bought by customers in the U.S. are coming from other countries. When I came to this country in the early 80’s it was the other way around.”Armed with this information, Dobbe and his fellow board members launched the American Grown campaign. A Certified American Grown Flowers identifying logo was created to grace the protective sleeves of all cut flowers that meet the standard. It communicates to the consumer that the flowers and foliage are grown in the U.S. by American farmers and that all ingredients in mixed bouquets are 100 percent grown and assembled in the U.S.As the program gains support, more and more American Grown sleeves are being seen throughout flowers shops and even the flower departments of larger grocery chains.Another key piece in the awareness process is to bring the story of U.S. flower growers to the attention of lawmakers who can have a significant impact on promoting American Grown flowers.Also sitting on the CCFC Governmental Relations Committee, as chair, Dobbe and his fellow committee members have been lobbying Washington D.C. representatives and secured Clark County’s own Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Camas) to become one of the first four co-chairs of the Congressional Flower Caucus back in 2014.Since then, support has gr...
