Waving the Flag at WFFSA

Certified American Grown promotes America's flower farmers at annual conference

This year’s annual Wholesale Florist & Floral Supply Association (WFFSA) conference was held at the Miami Airport Convention Center and Certified American Grown was there in a big way.


Certified American Grown farms stand with the all American Grown American Flag during the WFFSA reception on Wednesday night.

Mellano of Mellano & Company and F.J. Trzuskowski of Continental Floral Greens.

The Certified American Grown farms rallied to promote the American Grown program to the nation’s wholesalers in attendance at this year’s WFFSA conference.

The 8′ x 12′ flag was designed by Christy Hulsey of Colonial House of Flowers in Statesboro, Georgia and stood proudly in the lobby of the conference registration area for all to see.

It was a beautiful piece and enjoyed by many people who took their picture with it throughout the week.
