Growing Cut Flowers for Profit in Alberta 

Market growers and florists throughout the world are taking note as the “slow flower” movement progressively permeates the global floral industry. Popularized by Floret in Washington and celebrity florists throughout Europe, the demand for sustainable, locally grown blooms has reached our Western prairie boarders, and Alberta Girl Acres’ owner Sarah Adams is one of a small handful of growers here to meet that demand. Join her as she shares all the potential that growing sustainable blooms for profit in Alberta holds. 

Sarah Adams is a former communications and marketing professional who left it all behind to start a small scale cut flower farm in Vulcan, Alberta. Since launching her business, she has seen the demand for sustainable, local blooms grow exponentially throughout her region. In response, she is not only growing as many blooms as her small farm will bear, but she also created a business course for small scale growers looking to transform their gardens into marketable cut flower plots. The courses went so well, she decided to write a book titled DON’T PANIC: A Business Guide to Small Scale Cut Flower Farming: Year One, which was well received by growers and dreamers both local and abroad.
