About Christine and Foxglove
As the Twin Cities first exclusively local and chemical-free florist, Foxglove is more than just a flower studio. I am a slow flowers advocate striving to form a strong community of sustainable flower farmers, small business owners, and folks who care about supporting these mindful endeavors. By providing a local, sustainable option to traditional flowers, putting a premium on collaboration, and reaching out to the community, I hope to foster change.
The average grocery store bouquet travels around 2000 miles and encounters up to 127 different chemicals before it reaches your table. This is why Foxglove is dedicated to working with local farmers who are growing sustainably and organically. Flowers grown this way support a diverse ecological system, benefiting our local pollinators, birds, and wildlife. Blooms are cut the day before or that day, placed into buckets of water, and delivered by the growers directly to my studio! By offering these fresh beautiful blooms I hope to encourage consumers to live seasonally and celebrate the diverse range of products available from local flower farmers.
