Sustainability

Beautifying, Feeding and Restoring the World, One Transplant at a Time®


From water conservation, green packaging, employee relations, recycling, and waste prevention, to efficient land usage and community involvement, Greenheart Farms has always been an environmentally-conscious pioneer in the agriculture and horticulture industries.

In 2011, Greenheart® met the requirements to earn Veriflora® certification for sustainability in the growing process. Recognized as the gold standard in the floriculture and horticulture industries, VeriFlora® certification requires growers to meet strict sustainable agriculture standards including water conservation, energy efficiency, ecosystem protection, and integrated waste management. In addition, growers must comply with fair labor practices that ensure a safe, equitable, and healthy work environment, while maintaining industry-leading product quality requirements. Greenheart is also the first horticultural operation dedicated to vegetable transplant production to become VeriFlora® certified.
