Celebrating International Women's Day

Did you know that International Women's Day is one of the most important floral holidays worldwide? Though the UN-recognized holiday has been celebrated for more than 100 years in America and Europe, it wasn't until March 8, 1946 that Italian feminists named the mimosa flower the official bloom of the day. Today,  bouquets of flowers of all kinds are given in abundance on March 8 in timeless gestures of appreciation that transcend borders. 

We at Farmer Bailey are grateful to work with so many magnificent women mentors, educators, farmers, florists, and artists, and to serve our flower farming clients in their small businesses. Join us in celebrating International Women's Day by uplifting women's stories, patronizing woman-owned businesses, and seeking out ways to advance equality for all.  A few of the amazing women who have shared their wisdom and creativity here on the Farmer Bailey Blog are highlighted below. 

  • Heidi Joynt is a farmer, florist, retailer and Farmer Bailey customer.  Her design philosophy highlights the best each season has to offer with lyricism and ease. 
  • Lennie Larkin of B-Side Farm finds that the key to getting more joy–and profit–out of flower farming is to set business goals in the off-season.
