As you may know, when the shelter in place order began in Illinois we created the PFC Virtual Farmers Market, a directory that promoted as many local farmers and food vendors as we enter one of their usual most busy times of the season.
One of our most recent participants in the PFC Virtual Market is Southside Blooms- a farm-to-vase florist CSA on the Southside of Chicago who provide unique and fashion-forward floral arrangements delivered to your door while maintaining an uncompromising dedication to both the environment and their surrounding communities.
From their website, “Our urban chic designs draw from the resources and creative inspiration of the inner city– where all our blooms are grown. Every purchase directly contributes to job creation for at-risk youth and young adults in some of Chicago's toughest neighborhoods. Our flowers are "beyond-organic" because we use ZERO pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers, while these toxic chemicals are standard for the rest of the industry.”
We are excited to learn that Southside Blooms offer their flower CSA to the DuPage community and we strongly recommend that you support them.
We also will be raffling off TWO Southside Blooms CSA memberships to any new Owner or referrer in the month of June IF we reach 30 new PFC Owners by June 30th.
All you have to do to be eligible is either refer a new Owner or become a new PFC Owner.
Help us reach our goal by referring or becoming a PFC Owner and you might have a summer of locally grown flowers delivered to your door!
