Volunteers band together to revive recycled-bouquet programTuesday, October 30, 2018
Random Acts of Flowers: Blossom Buddies in Menlo Park and Flowers of Comfort in San Jose.
Many of the volunteers have maintained their earlier relationships with local donor retailers, florists and markets.
"There's nothing that excites us as much as a bucket of day-old or week-old flowers," said Palo Alto resident Barbara Levin, as the group cheered the arrival of a new bucket of leftovers from Mills Florist. Levin is a longtime volunteer who routinely collects cast-offs from Trader Joe's in Palo Alto. Others pick up from Trader Joe's in Menlo Park and a branch of Whole Foods.
"We never know what flowers or vases we're going to have to work with, so every time we come in it's a new and interesting experience and it's a way of showing off our creative side," Levin said.
The women have no trouble unpacking funeral wreaths and other event-specific arrangements to "create something more interesting," Klause said. But in some cases the used flowers are not fresh enough for a second life and must be discarded.
Volunteer Sandra Bachman, a Woodside resident, said her favorite place to deliver is Stanford University Hospital.
"To go in and see patients that do not have any flowers or visitors and walk in with a bouquet and for five minutes they forget about their problems," Bachman said. "They open their eyes and to get that smile, and to hear through that family what a difference that can make for healing ... A lot of the nurses say it helps them heal. It brings the outside in, the sunshine in."
