Certified Sustainable Hydrangea

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this adage is especially true when it comes to Sun Valley Hydrangea.

However, what you can’t see in these beautiful images is that these Hydrangeas have been certified sustainably grown by the Rainforest Alliance.

Rainforest Alliance Certified Hydrangea

Sun Valley is the first flower farm in the United State to become Rainforest Alliance Certified.

Established in 1987, the Rainforest Alliance is a growing network of farmers, foresters, communities, scientists, governments, environmentalists and businesses dedicated to conserving biodiversity and ensuring sustainable livelihoods. They are an international non-profit organization working to build strong forests, healthy agricultural landscapes, and thriving communities through creative, pragmatic collaboration.

Arcata is tucked among the giant Redwoods of Humboldt County. We are in a temperate rainforest, which is also the ideal location for growing Hydrangea, Tulips, Iris, Lilies and other flowers that love cool weather.

The Arcata Community Forest is one of our local gems for hiking and biking, and on a run last week I noticed this forest is also certified Sustainable by the Rainforest Alliance.

Consumers are looking for assurances that their flowers were grown in a sustainable manner, and Sun Valley is leading the industry.

By offering freshly picked Rainforest Alliance Certified Hydrangea, you will be sure to delight and amaze your customers.
