US (CA): Legislators battle it out at Field to Vase Dinner

The most recent American Grown Field to Vase Dinner was unique, even for this remarkable tour.

It wasn’t on a farm. It involved politicians and was held on the lawn of a state capitol.

It started with a reception where guests enjoyed watching members of the California state assembly compete in a floral design competition hosted by the California Cut Flower Commission. For the last three years, the California Cut Flower Commission has hosted this design competition involving legislators to help raise awareness that June is California Grown Flower Month. Combining the American Grown Field to Vase Dinner with this annual tradition by CCFC was not only fitting, but it also really helped guests, including California’s lawmakers, understand just how valuable the American Grown Flower movement has become.

After the vote was tallied, Assemblywoman Monique Limón was announced the champion of the 2018 Floral Design Challenge. Limón will receive a delivery of fresh American Grown Flowers each month for an entire year to display in her office.

One guest commented that the design competition was “entertaining and a great local touch.”
