Flower Field Visits

On August 4th, students from both Cal Poly campuses were treated to three separate tours with a bundle of flowers! Each of the fields visited provide our float with CA Grown flowers each year, helping to certify our float as such. This certification ensures that 85% of the fresh flowers on our float are grown in California, which is why we need our California Farmers.

The three fields visited were all located in San Diego County and include: Resendiz Brothers, Mellano & Co, and Dramm & Echter. Click on the buttons above to take a look at their website.

Pomona Retreat

Students from the Pomona team enjoyed a full day of camping and team building in the Chino Hills State Park earlier this month. This is an annual trip is structured to build relations between all members of the Pomona campus to spark everlasting relationships throughout their float making process.

In addition to the leadership and team building activities scheduled for the trip, students enjoyed roaming the landscape. The Chino Hills State Park is filled with multiple hiking trails that the students were able to explore during their stay.

The picture of the Pomona team (shown above) does not show everyone on the team, but fortunately everyone was able to attend.
