As CEO and Creative Director of New Age Floral, a trailblazing new business in the field of Sustainable Floristry, Kirsten VanDijk has found renewed purpose in the evolution of her career in the Floral Industry. Kirsten’s relationship with flowers began as a child of the 60’s and 70’s and is now focused on the big picture of Sustainability. Intuitive Designer, Competitor, former owner of My PassionFlower Floral Boutiques, Creator of Project Flower Show, a novel online Floral Design Platform with 6K plus Members, and dirt-under-the-finger-nails gardener, Kirsten’s latest venture is “a completion of a circle of sorts. We need to protect The Source.”
International floral studies under some of the greatest masters across the globe helped to expand her knowledge of not only flowers but as well the need for a more sustainable approach to floristry in general. “It was while working on the large central installation in an historic and celebrated castle in Belgium when I realized just how much of a contrast existed between the beauty of the flowers and the environmental impact of what goes into the making of these complex events and collaborations.”
