We take an active role in the communities our farms are located in, as we strive to make a positive impact on people and our surroundings. We engage with our neighbors to discuss improvement possibilities around our farms and implement safety and wellbeing measures.
We always give priority in hiring to members of the local community and always seek feedback so we can hear what is important to them. Our staff is active in community outreach efforts such as local donation drives, community projects and cooperatives because giving back and having harmonious, long term relationships within our community is important to us.
We aim to help from within by promoting self-worth and autonomy for women. We are committed to hiring women to empower them economically.
Our skilled agronomists have devised a rigorous integrated pest-management plan in keeping with Native Blooms’ mission to make a positive difference. We’ve analyzed and tweaked our strategy to ensure exceptional outcomes while protecting the environment and our employees’ health and safety.
We are happy to be a sponsoring farm for the Flowers for Kids program which teaches participants of all ages how to appreciate, care for, and arrange ﬂowers. The goal is to not only educate children about ﬂowers but also have them experience creating their own bouquets to take home.
Flowers are nature’s simple solution to improving one’s emotional health. Being in the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions and heightens feelings of life satisfaction. Researchers found the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a 10-month study of participants’ behavioral and emotional responses to receiving flowers. The results show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods. They have an immediate impact on happiness, have a long-term positive effect on moods, make intimate connections, and lead to increased contact with family and friends. So not only do flowers make us happier, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.
We strongly believe in the importance of preserving the bees, as they’re a part of the biodiversity which we rely on for our survival.
Because we believe that animals deserve to have a safe space to grow in, at the Rosas del Cotopaxi farm we took in rescue dogs and provided them with shelter, food and everything in between so that they can be brought up in a pet-friendly environment.
