Impact

Wayflowering is a regenerative social enterprise creating careers for refugees. Regenerative farming is an approach to agriculture that works to restore the natural health of the soil. By composting, adding organic matter, planting perennial crops, cover cropping, and minimizing soil disruption, we can rebuild biodiversity and sequesters significant amounts of carbon, combatting climate change. We are pesticide and herbicide free. We provide a local #netzero alternative to industrial cut flowers which have heavy carbon footprints and questionable labor practices.

 

Our flower fields support 20 bee hives on the farm, a number of local cooperative hives and countless wild pollinators.
