At Vasesource, we love seeing our customers thrive in their element and helping them with their career advancements. Whether it's a great turn out for an event or a raving review on a floral arrangement, we succeed when our customers succeed. This week, we want to tell you about an organization that can contribute to your continuing business achievements.
in 1961, The American Floral Endowment (A.F.E) has a dedicated desire to inform
and educate individuals who have a passion for working in floriculture and
horticulture. This non-profit organization benefits growers, wholesalers,
retailers and allies in the floral industry, regardless of experience.
The A.F.E provides educational
business opportunities for individuals looking to expand their knowledge of the
ins and outs of the floral industry. While providing these programs, they also offer
students who are looking to pursue an education and career in horticulture the
chance to apply for scholarships, grants and industry related internships.
While a part of the donated
funds go to their scholarships programming, another part goes to their research
team. Their research supports finding solutions to scientific problems facing the floral industry. This includes stopping the spread of diseases and
pests that can harm flowers and plants. They also help growers learn about new
technologies in development to assist in the care and handling of plants.
from a strong floral industry and the A.F.E is here to support and protect
them. They will be there for you too as your business continues to grow. To learn more about the American Floral Endowment, you can visit their website
Vasesource has its roots in New York City, where it was founded in
1998 by Itzik Yakobi, a man with grand designs on the floral
industry. Our aim is to provide an exceptional range of products
with personalized customer service. In 2014 Vasesource acquired
YBS Imports, a move that gave wholesale florists access to our
unique designs. Today we supply floral studios, event planners,
hotels and online stores along the East Coast, across the nation,
and around the world.
