We had the pleasure of participating in the 70th Annual Rose Parade. Several members of our team, along with other members of the California Cut Flower Commission volunteered their time to the Cal Poly float. In addition to helping with helping with decorating the float we chatted with hundreds of onlookers as they watched thousands of California Grown flowers transform into an aquatic wonderland.
