Meet your neighborhood florist, Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers - St. Louis MagazineSunday, July 05, 2020
Karen “Mimo” Davis was a 31-year-old social worker, living in New York City, when her mother and stepfather asked her to look after their greenhouse in Missouri—and the property’s 132 rosebushes—while they honeymooned. “I fell in love with horticulture,” says Davis. Within the year, she left New York and bought a farm in Ashland, Missouri, where she began growing and selling flowers. (In 2008, Davis earned a master’s degree in horticulture.) In 2012, Davis and her then-partner (now wife), Miranda Duschack, got word of a greenhouse for sale in Dutchtown. Feeling adventurous, they bought the greenhouse—designed by Lord & Burnham in the ’50s—with an acre of land, eventually acquiring eight more plots that were once the site of Held’s Florist, a flower farm, dating back to the 1800s. Today, the farmstead is known as Urban Buds: City Grown Flowers, where more than 70 varieties of flowers are grown. “We’re in the heart of the city,” says Davis. “Few people get to connect with farming, and [our shop] ... https://www.stlmag.com/design/urban-buds-flowers/

Anne Dickson is working hard to bring joy to the residents of Pittsburgh with pop-up flower displays.Florists have been hard hit by the pandemic. With major events being canceled, a lot of work and profit has dried up. However, one Pittsburgh florist, Anne Dickson, has decided to put her skills and time to good use.Inspired by fellow florist, New Yorker Louis Miller, who’s been creating some stunning “flower flashes” to brighten up New York City, Dickson decided she wanted to spread some floral joy in her own community, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.She started by sharing her gratitude with health workers for all their hard work. So the owner of Fox and the Fleur florists went along to Shadyside’s Family House, where patients and their families can stay together. She brought some bright blooms to decorate the facade of the house with an impressive installation. She also tagged her work “F&F [Heart] Pittsburgh #flower power” in chalk on the sidewalk in front of the home, and added it to her Instagram account to spread a little more joy.From there Dickson created more imp... https://aleteia.org/2021/03/24/florist-brightens-her-city-with-gorgeous-floral-installations/
Slaughterhouse Workers Can Now Get Free Job Training to Become Florists - VegNewsWednesday, March 31, 2021
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Kim Cordova, president of labor union United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7, urging her to encourage workers to become florists in light of the ongoing pandemic and offering for PETA to pay for the necessary job training to make the transition. “Working on the kill floor is a dangerous, dirty, dead-end job,” Newkirk said. “PETA is happy to help budding flower arrangers flee the meat industry for the sake of animals and their own mental health.” Last week, a number of meat companies closed slaughterhouses as an increasing number of workers became infected with COVID-19—a disease thought to have originated from a wet animal market, not dissimilar from a slaughterhouse, in Wuhan, China late last year. Smithfield shuttered its Sioux Falls, SD pig slaughterhouse after 230 workers tested positive, Cargill closed its meat-packaging plant near Hazleton, PA, after reporting 130 positive cases, and JBS temporarily shut down its beef slaughterhouse in Souderton, PA after 17 workers tested positive.Love the plant-based lifestyle as much as we do?Get the BEST vegan recipes, travel, celebrity interviews, product picks, and so much more inside every issue of VegNews Magazine.
