A Year Like No Other
The year 2020 seems to be lasting a decade, and it’s only midsummer. We started with great hopes: an ASCFG membership exploding with new creative and successful growers, a dynamic and committed Board of Directors, and a Strategic Plan that would help us find and collaborate with experienced partners to create new educational and research programs for our members.
We couldn’t be prouder of their initiative and energy, and believe their successes will carry them through this season and beyond. We know, though, that not all cut flower growers were able to surmount the challenges they faced, and hope they’ll be able to turn around their businesses in the future.
We look to the second half of the year with cautious optimism, and with gratitude for the generosity and goodwill of our members. We know that working with the soil provides a life balance and a positive purpose not always afforded our fellow humans, and hope that you’ll share that privilege and peace with others.
