From the 5th to the 11th of July, our members will be celebrating all that is great about locally-grown flowers and foliage – and the people who grow them!
Watch out for us in the media – some of us have been interviewed for ‘Countrywide’ on Radio 1 and ‘Farmtalk with John O’Connor’ on C103.
We’re hoping to meet up for a quick chat with an Taoiseach, Micháel Martin, and present him with some beautiful flowers as well as our new Press Briefing Document. Members have been interviewed for various national and regional Newspapers, including the Offaly Independent, the Gorey Guardian, the Westmeath Examiner, and the Irish Farmers Journal. We’ll be popping up like wildflowers throughout the week – for full details look for the hashtag #irishflowerweek2021 on Instagram.
We’ve also commissioned a special video presentation, which includes ‘behind-the-scenes’ views of some members’ farms and gardens, as well as our flowers looking their very best!
Some of our ever-generous members will be giving away flowers and bouquets throughout the week, you’ll find these on instagram also, using the same hashtag – #irishflowerweek2021
Be sure to check out our ‘Find a Flower Farmer’ page to see where your nearest growers are and follow them.
As if our flowers weren’t pretty and colourful enough, we’re also introducing our new, environmentally friendly, stickers – all bouquets and arrangements supplied by members during Irish Flower Week 2021 will have this logo – your promise that your purchase is supporting Irish Flower Farmers and all the benefits we bring to our local communities. Your friendly neighbourhood pollinators will thank you!
