Slow flower movement with Grown Not Flown co-founder Nikki Davey

Nikki Davey is a co-founder of Grown Not Flown - a digital platform supporting the slow flower movement to reduce flower miles, boost local economies and showcase the best our flower industry has to offer.

Launched in 2021 during the pandemic, Grown Not Flown started as a social media platform showcasing and promoting local farmers growing seasonal blooms. It quickly morphed into an app to facilitate an easier connection between growers and consumers.

Grown Not Flown now boasts over 500 growers on the app and is in 14 different countries; there is nothing slow about this brands growth.

Nikki lives with her partner in Glenmore, a small rural hamlet in Victoria, and was this year named a Victorian finalist for the @agrifuturesau Rural Women’s Award.

Nikki shares with us the start up phase of Grown Not Flown, why it’s important to know where our flowers come from, the value in identifying transferrable skills, her recent learning of what it means to be neurodivergent, as well as her personal story of pregnancy loss.

In this episode, we speak about pregnancy loss and for some this may be difficult to listen to. If so, you might want to skip this episode or move through it mindfully.
