In 2010, four flower farmers flew to Washington, D.C., to advocate and address issues on behalf of California’s flower farmers. Since then, an advocacy trip to the nation’s capitol has been held each year and has grown beyond California. The annual tradition now includes flower farmers from across the country who come together each year to advance an agenda specific to the issues and opportunities facing our domestic flower farming families.
With a new administration and a new Congress, the 8th Annual Washington, D.C., Fly-in will be the most important trip to date. As Diana Roy of Resendiz Brothers Protea and chair of the California Cut Flower Commission says, “There is strength in numbers.”
In this video, Diana invites flower farmers from across the country to join together in Washington, D.C., to advocate, meet with their lawmaker and help raise the profile of America’s flower farmers.
Join your fellow flower farmers in Washington, D.C., February 28 – March 2.
