Five new AFE videos have been released highlighting floriculture successes through industry collaboration, support and participation.
“Each video shares real stories from industry members on career development through scholarships and internships, and true examples of research solutions that have shaped how the industry operates today,” said Laura Shinall, President of Syndicate Sales, Inc., and AFE Public Relations and Development Chair.
“We’re excited to be able to share some great success stories in an effort to increase industry participation.”
The introductory video “Heard of the American Floral Endowment?” helps educate those who are not currently aware of AFE’s programs, while the remaining four segmented videos (retail, wholesale, grower, student/faculty) specifically share how Endowment programs complement each group and why it is so important that everyone in the industry participates.
- Retail Florists Share Why They Turn to AFE
- New Resources for Floral Wholesalers and Suppliers
- AFE Helping Growers Profit
- Ready for a Career in Floriculture or Horticulture?
AFE Trustees recognize, and are grateful to, current and past supporters for these successes, but urge industry-wide support to continue tackling the ever-increasing industry challenges now and into the future.
Think about this: if industry members don’t come together to support floriculture growth, who will?
