Thank You for a Milestone Year!

We are so thankful to be supported by dedicated donors who share our passion for the floral industry!

Your support helps ensure that we can continue providing vital resources, programs, and cutting-edge, research-driven advancements. AFE Chairman Ken Young speaks to 2023 donors in the following video, and discusses some exciting new initiatives coming in 2024.

We are excited to share the following accomplishments from 2023:

A very special recognition is deserved for our longtime research director, Dr. Terril Nell, who retired in December after nine years with AFE. We certainly wish him and his lovely bride Cathy all the best in their next journey.  At the same time, we welcome AFE’s new research coordinator Laura Barth who has already hit the ground running to continue ensuring AFE’s research flourishes.

And finally, want to recognize the many donors who support the work we do. We couldn’t do it without you and on behalf of the AFE Board of Trustees, we thank you. Your support helps provide funding and resources to advance our industry. Without the programs and research AFE provides, the floral industry would not be able to tackle challenges or develop our next generation of industry leaders.

We’re excited about kicking off the new year with a new AFE website, as well as a new Sustainabloom website, a full year of new monthly webinars, and new partnership plans and recognitions for supporters.

We hope you’ll continue to support our efforts and we look forward to serving the industry in 2024!
