Greenhouse Grower's GROW

Greenhouse Grower’s GROW is a strategic initiative designed to help the U.S. floriculture industry secure its long-term future by focusing on the following pillars: Invest in the Industry, Sharpen Business Management, Demand Quality, Cultivate New Customers, and Drive Consumer Success. A diverse group of GROW partners supports Greenhouse Grower in these endeavors.

The GROW program also includes two task forces: Business Management, which helps growers improve their bottom line by knowing their true production costs, and Marketing, which works to identify, gather, and create marketing resources that the horticulture industry can use to raise awareness of the benefits of plants in everyday living, attract young people to the industry, and promote their businesses.
