PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Kerstin Poehlmann President

Dear members and friends of the SDCF&PA, When I look back at 2022, I can safely say that it was a good year for our association! We got to celebrate our 75th anniversary as association. We were able to fully return to in-person events, where we celebrated several social gatherings and had a few educational events. The participation and enthusiasm that our members showed at these events speaks to the nature of our association: we are a place for networking and supporting each other in this wonderful industry that we all love so much.

I’m especially excited that 2022 brought a strong new board of directors with a couple of young industry professionals joining our board. Seeing new talent be equally as enthusiastic about our industry as us old-timers gives me great hope for the future of our association and industry. Plus, we got to welcome several companies as new members of the association, so we continue to go strong. As I’m writing this, there is some uncertainty about what 2023 may have in store for us. With high inflation and rising interest rates dominating the headlines, we have to prepare for consumers potentially cutting back on discretionary spending. That’s why we have to make our voices heard and make enough “noise” so that plants and flowers stay at the forefront of consumers’ minds. That’s why we have to support each other and keep a lively idea exchange going so that we can continue to grow as individual companies, as association, and as an industry. We already have a great lineup of events planned for the year, so there will be plenty of opportunities to network. I hope to see many of you there!

Cheers to a successful 2023 for our association, our industry, and each and every one of you! As always, I thank you for your support and welcome your ideas and suggestions on how we can make our association and our industry even stronger than they are, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Best regards, Kerstin Poehlmann, President

Our mission is to strengthen, advance and support the oriculture industry in Southern California

Throughout his career of 40+ years, René has been an avid supporter of the floral industry on a regional, national and international level. Recognized as an expert in his field, he is known to be generous in volunteering his time and expertise for the benefit of the industry and for various non-profit organizations.

TESTIMONIALS

Gregg Opgenorth

& Nadler Nurseries

My experiences with the SDCF&PA have been very positive over the more than 30 years of working in the Horticulture industry in San Diego County.

The association provides numerous opportunities to stay current with compliance requirements as well as the information to stay informed of many industry events.

The most beneficial part of being involved with the SDFP&PA for me has been the social/networking opportunities that the association provides. There is nothing like visiting other companies’ facilities for meetings or getting together at a brewery to spend time with other great growers to discuss mutual challenges and solutions to those challenges.

For me being a member of this organization has been a very positive and beneficial experience.

When Dramm Echter Farms put down roots in Encinitas, California, more than four decades ago, it wasn’t just owers that ourished in the fertile soil and sunny coastal weather, but a family business with a passion for farming. The founding partners, Jim Echter and Gene Dramm, began farming in Encinitas in the mid 1960’s. By 1972 a formal partnership was formed and they began shipping California grown owers as ‘Dramm and Echter’ across the nation. While many things on the farm have changed over the years, one thing stays the same- our dedication to producing high-quality owers for wholesalers, orists, and mass market retailers nationwide.
