WHY BUY LOCAL FLOWERS AND HERBS?
All of Sweet Gale Gardens blooms and herbs are cut to order and guaranteed fresh.
We choose plant varieties for qualities like scent, flavour, colour and plant disease and pest resistance.
Our farm products travel shorter distances from farm to table and we use minimal disposable packaging.
We hire locally. We buy as much as possible from other local farm and horticultural supply businesses for our seeds to our irrigation equipment. We support and collaborate with other local small businesses in our community.
Imported flowers are often grown in countries with questionable worker treatment and environmental laws. We pay all of our staff above minimum wage, train for safety, and endeavour to provide a democratic and educative working environment.
