Len Busch Roses Helps Spread Word of ‘The Flower Movement’
A wholesale flower provider in Plymouth is calling on all flower lovers to give back to their respective communities next month.
Len Busch Roses in Plymouth is working to get the word out about ‘The Flower Movement,’ an idea conjured up by the Wholesale Florist & Florist Supplier Association (WFFSA).
From Aug. 8-14, everyone from employees at different flower shops, to people who simply enjoy working in their garden, are encouraged to spend time serving their community by using flowers or plants.
“People who love gardening and have those resources, maybe they go to a daycare center for the summer, for that week, and they teach kids about gardening — weeding, planting seeds, growing vegetables,” said Georgia Edgington, the lead floral designer at Len Busch Roses. “Just to think outside the box and look at what you can do to serve the community by using flowers.”
At the end of July, Len Busch Roses will host a WFFSA national convention. Participants of the convention will kick off The Flower Movement two weeks early by putting together floral arrangements and donating them to local food shelves and senior living communities.
