Did you know many exotic flowers sold at the supermarket or by florists come from far-away places like China and South America? Stems that come from far away are flown in on gas-guzzling planes. If you think flowers that have more frequent flier miles than you is crazy, think local instead. To find locally grown flowers -- which are also often less expensive -- use the website localharvest.org to find nearby growers. Just type in your zip code, and a list of local farmers, farms and retail stores will pop up.
