ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- In three years, two local women, Mimo (Karen) Davis and Miranda Duschack, took a one-acre farm
located in a corner of Dutchtown in South City and transformed it into a productive flower farm, Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers. With a state-of-the-art high tunnel thanks to funding from the Missouri Department of Agriculture, a large glass greenhouse, and their sustainably grown flowers, these ladies are dedicated to making Missouri a bigger player in the U.S. flower market and helping to increase stateside flower production. As it stands, only 20 percent of the flowers used in the United States market are grown here in the U.S..

The ladies of Urban Buds say it's easy to get your hands on their fresh, locally grown flowers. They're currently being sold to local florists, just ask for Urban Buds flowers. They also sell their flowers each Saturday at the Tower Grove Farmer's Market from 8 am until noon, rain or shine.
