Jet Fresh Flower Growers’ 2019 Kite Contest

On August 7, 2019, our rose farm, Jet Fresh Flower Growers, S.A. hosted our first 2019 Kite Contest. A summer Ecuadorian tradition, our team shared a fun team-building experience making and flying kites, competing for the titles of Highest Flight and the Most Creative.

Twenty teams were given about an hour and a half to design their own kite from scratch and make sure it flies in order to qualify for the prizes. They had various supplies to build their kites including pampas grass stems which were foraged from our farm.

A “Bando de Pueblo,” (town band), also came to motivate the teams and played while they made and flew the kites.
