Most flowers on the market today are imported, mass-produced and chemical-laden. The 50 Mile Bouquet introduces some of the innovative voices of the dynamic new Slow Flower movement: the organic flower farmers, the sustainably-motivated floral designers ... and the flower enthusiasts who are increasingly asking, "Where and how were my flowers grown, and who grew them?" With documentary-feature reporting and full color photographs, this visually elegant book takes us into the farms and design studios of these slow-flower folks to follow the green journey of the 50 mile bouquet. This is the first book to spotlight this major transformation in how cut flowers are grown, designed and consumed, which closely mirrors the locavore/slow food revolution in the culinary world.

The 50 Mile Bouquet is the slow flower guide to organic flower-growing, gathering and design.

Foreword by Amy Stewart, author of Flower Confidential.
