This PVD Flower Farm Is Brightening The Days Of So Many People & OMG
That Floral Feeling
Wicked Tulips just wrapped another successful season in Johnston, with practically everyone and their grandma uploading from there this month.
It also won’t be long until we start seeing all those check-ins from 10,000 Suns on South Water in Providence.
And Camille Donatacci Grammer Meyer’s bridesmaids wore gorgeous flower crowns on last night’s episode of RHOBH.
Beautiful flowers that uplift are all around us. On social, on our fave shows, and in our everyday lives.
But have you heard of What Cheer Flower Farm?
I, for one, had no idea it existed - until I saw something on Twitter recently about their donating a bunch of floral arrangements to Crossroads in the capital city.
File This Under What A Great Idea
Established in 2017, in PVD’s Olneyville neighborhhood on what was once factory land, What Cheer is a non-profit urban farm that donates all their blooms (something like 30K a year) to local shelters, senior housing, hospitals, food banks, and “those who need to feel the community’s care.”
They also recycle leftover flowers that go unsold after major holidays (like Mom’s Day, for example). Supermarkets and the like give them to What Cheer, and they, in turn, transform the leftovers into beautiful bouquets to be donated to other local np’s. (Huzzah! And how did I only just find out about them?!?)
Let Your Dreams Blossom
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering (I hear that they are looking for ppl for this Summer.), or you just want to know more about their mission, follow What Cheer Flower Farm across all their channels:
