Join us for the National Floriculture Forum meeting!

National Floriculture Forum

The National Floriculture Forum (NFF) is an annual educational meeting for greenhouse growers, industry leaders, university faculty, graduate students and government scientists from academic institutions, governmental agencies and the greenhouse industry.

This group of floriculturists have been meeting since 1999.

Longwood Gardens

The NFF brings together diverse floricultural communities with the objectives to 1) address issues of importance to the floriculture industry, 2) form collaborative relationships and 3) improve communication within the American floriculture industry to share and disseminate information.

These meetings are one-of-a-kind and continue to bring members of the floriculture community together each year.

Philadelphia Flower Show in Philadelphia, PA

The 2017 National Floriculture Forum went to the Philadelphia Flower Show and Longwood Gardens in Philadelphia, PA on March 17-19, 2017.

Trip Overview:

The 2017 NFF meeting took advantage of the Philadelphia Flower Show, the region’s close proximity to multiple public gardens and a commercial hydroponic cut flower operation that sells direct to the consumer.

On the last day, participants gathered to discuss increasing the younger generation participation in production and academic floriculture and horticulture. This is such an important issue, as much of the industry is aging and many educators are retiring with no one to step in.

Members of AFE’s Young Professionals Council attended the event, as well.
