On Monday, January 18, 2016, more than 50 people representing at least 30 different flower farms from across the state braved the bitter cold to gather at Sunny Meadows Flower Farm in Columbus for a day of networking and information sharing. The event included small group discussions, a "show and tell" segment, and a farm tour. 

A few photos from the event: 

Prior to the event, we surveyed participants on a variety of topics and then shared the results at the event.  The following photos represent some of the responses to the survey questions:
