Giving flowers
a future

A force for nature

SFN is a new, independent education organisation for florists. We are creating a new standard for floristry, based around sustainability principles.

Modern floral design
is unsustainable

As florists, we love nature, but the widespread use of floral foam, excessive packaging and flying out-of-season blooms across the world are just some of the problems we must tackle.

The problems

The SFN solution is education

The SFN has developed a CPD education program to support a new generation of florists committed to sustainability.

Education program

Course one – online

The first course in our Flowers 2030 program has launched online.
