Jeff Karpman & Grace Hanna of Westerlay Orchids on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

Kerry's been working on this one for a while! Westerlay Orchids is a third generation family business and taps Dutch roots to grow the finest flowers on the Pacific Coast. Director Jeff Karpman and e-commerce specialist Grace Hannah join us on The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone to share what it's like running Southern California’s largest commercial grower of Phalaenopsis and Cymbidium orchids. (The company distributes more than 3 million orchids a year!)

We'll talk about the company's innovative environmental and sustainability practices, as well as how they support local schools, nonprofit organizations, and their community.
