Anarchist Emma Goldman once said: I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck." We too enjoy a bouquet of blooms, especially when theyre eco-friendly.
All the flowers at Green Poppies are certified Sierra Eco, grown in South America by fairly paid workers using few pesticides. And dont think fair trade means wilted carnations and dandelions; they carry the finest Spray Asters, pink roses, Goldenrods, and Bells of Ireland.
For some do-it-yourself bunches and center pieces, sign up for a floral arranging workshop ($40/2 hours, includes flowers and vase).
On second thought, well take the roses and the jewellery.
