Glacier's Edge Council Flower Sale

IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT

The flower and home vegetable gardening industry has just exploded over the last few years. Greenhouse have been overwhelmed with the increase in business because of the increased interest in this hobby. While many businesses suffered losses due to the pandemic, the gardening industry experienced a healthy boost. U.S. Census Bureau statistics show that the building material and garden retail sector saw a sales revenue increase of 8.6% since the spring of 2020 as a result of the popular home and garden trend.

However, the pandemic isn’t the only reason for the American consumer’s renewed interest in home gardening. If you look at the way sales revenue has grown on a year-over-year basis, you can see that the trend started before COVID-19 appeared. The average sales revenue of home gardening industry products had year-over-year growth of 4.62% in 2018. Two years later, in 2020, that annual growth rate nearly double to 8.79%.

We have reached out to several local greenhouses to see if any greenhouses can supply us with the hanging baskets and flower flats that we have offered in the past without success. So, we will not be able to offer this fundraiser.

If you have a Scout or Scouts that need to fundraise to pay their own way to summer camp or other Scouting activities or if your unit need funds to pay for new equipment, etc. the online direct popcorn sale through Trail’s End if available year-round.
