To meet Elaine Scott and Colleen Brenan, co-owners of Kati Mac Floral Designs, a non-profit flower shop in West Chester. Their mission is to provide meaningful employment to people with intellectual disabilities.

• Point of Pride: “We are really proud of the fact that over 50% of our employees have special needs,” said Colleen Brennan. “It would be rare for someone to walk into our store and not see one of our employees with special needs working.”

• Petal Power: “I’m so thrilled when I see the success of someone who wasn’t so sure about the flower business and all of a sudden they can’t wait to get dressed in the morning and get to work,” said said Elaine Scott. .

If the music is pumping when you walk into Kati Mac Floral Designs in West Chester – especially if it’s a song by Luke Bryan or Keith Urban – you can bet employee Emily Scott is serving as DJ on that day. -the.

“I’m kind of a party girl,” she said. “And I love to greet people. If people have questions, I’m the person.

The atmosphere in this heavenly-smelling High Street store is so lively that employee Lily Seagraves said it rivaled her second job, as a member of staff at the Eagles’ match day event. Philadelphia welcoming fans and giving instructions.

“It’s really fun working here,” Seagraves said. “It’s awesome and amazing at the same time.”

While Kati Mac Floral Designs has been a West Chester staple for over a decade, last year it changed hands when Elaine Scott (Emily’s mother) and Colleen Brennan were given the shop to help them achieve their dream of creating a meaningful work environment. for people with intellectual disabilities.

The full-service florist now operates as a non-profit organization, with a mission to provide a positive space for people with dementia to learn, train and grow. Currently, six of the store’s 10 employees are people with Down syndrome, including Seagraves, 19, and Scott, 25.

“It means so much to me that Emily is working here, enjoying her job and finding her niche,” Elaine Scott said.

Brennan’s 15-year-old daughter Katie, who has Down’s Syndrome, is too young to work at the shop but loves to visit and go out to deliver flowers with her mother.

“She asks me all the time, ‘Are we going to the flower shop today? Can we go to the flower shop today?'” Brennan said. day.”

These two mothers – with no previous experience in the floral business – took on this adventure not only out of love for their own children, but also out of love for the ‘village’ of people they met through the Chester County Down Syndrome Interest Grouper.

“There’s no textbook, there’s no guide on how to navigate, whether it’s in school or if it’s a medical condition,” Brennan said. “The way my husband and I have always navigated life with Katie is through this community of people.”

Scott, a mother of four, started the Chester County Down Syndrome Interest Group (CCDSIG) shortly after Emily was born.

Brennan, a mother of two who met Scott through CCDSIG and eventually joined its board, became the organization’s Buddy Walk President. Under his leadership, the event was such a financial success that CCDSIG was able to accumulate savings.

Conversations started about how to make a real impact with the money they had raised. Scott often heard of parents struggling to find meaningful employment for their children with cognitive disabilities beyond stacking towels and cleaning tables.

“It’s a very random, individualized approach to finding a job,” Scott said. “Some parents use services like [the] Office of Vocational Rehabilitation or other government-funded organizations. There is often a waiting list, a lack of staff, or as I have found a long wait to see if your waiver money will fund the service.

According to the 2022 Case for Inclusion report, only 18% of adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities in Pennsylvania work alongside people without disabilities and earn market-determined wages, slightly less than the national average of 20%.

Brennan and Scott wanted to help change that.

“Lo and behold, this flower shop opened and went for sale,” Scott said. “It was the perfect situation to take that seed capital and turn it into a business and create that employment opportunity.”

The shop has had several owners during its 12 years of operation. In 2016, it was purchased by EBS Healthcare, which provides therapeutic and behavioral health services, with the intention of bringing employees with developmental disabilities to work there. Scott helped out with the business and some people volunteered in the store, but the goal of paying employees with cognitive disabilities never came to fruition and the store closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

In January 2021, the store was gifted by EBS to Scott and Brennan, who established the Kati Mac Education Foundation, a Pennsylvania charter nonprofit that operates the business with CCDSIG as its parent group. They decided to keep the store’s recognizable name and its floral designer, Ashlee Smith, who has worked at the store for six years and helped teach Brennan and Scott the ropes.

“It’s fantastic. It was a big change, but a welcome one,” Smith said. “The employees are really fun to be around.”

The owners, who officially opened the store in June and began onboarding employees with cognitive disabilities in January, have also hired employment manager Christy Rainey, whose sole focus is helping employees with disabilities. intellectual. Rainey not only helps train employees, but is also a constant presence on the shop floor to offer support, advice and guidance.

“I’ve worked with children before, which was wonderful, but working with this community of adults is amazing,” Rainey said. “You earn their trust and that keeps them coming back.”

Each of the shop’s employees focused on specific parts of the business. Lily Seagraves is the person responsible for processing the flowers and putting them in buckets; employee Lauren Kilgore, 22, finds satisfaction in removing thorns from roses; and Emily Scott enjoys office roles.

When it comes to deliveries, Kati Mac’s has a fleet of all-volunteer drivers, from Brennan and Elaine Scott themselves, to others in their CCDSIG village, many of whom bring their children.

While much of the store’s business is weddings, right now the store is bustling with prom season and Mother’s Day orders.

As Emily Scott spoke of her own mother – whom she calls ‘my sweet love’ – she was overwhelmed with emotion.

“The reason I call her my sweet love [is] because she does so many things for me. [She] takes care of someone who has special needs in their life and… special needs are kind of part of our lives,” Emily Scott said. “Having special needs is a wonderful and beautiful feeling on the inside. How much I love it!”

Although there is a waiting list, those interested in inquiring about employment with Kati Mac can email katimacfloraldesigns@gmail.com with the subject line “Job Application”.

Employers interested in hiring people with developmental disabilities can contact the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion or their local chapter of The Arc for more information.

TWIN FALLS, Idaho — A local florist in Twin Falls has set up a fundraising page to donate tulips to the senior community.

Blush Floral is a Magic Valley flower shop owned by Chandra Carr. The desire to offer tulips to retirement homes came after placing an order.

A couple asked if the flowers were for them and Carr had to reluctantly say no, but the idea of ​​tulips for the elderly struck her immediately.

“When I started, I didn’t think people would donate, and I was a little scared, but I was like you know what I have nothing to lose,” she said. .

She posted on GoFundMe and in five hours she reached her goal of $1,000 and since then has doubled that amount.

“Last time I think we were only able to give away 26 bunches of tulips and now we’re giving away 157, so that’s pretty cool,” she said.

Makayla Dalos is an events coordinator at Chardonnay Assisted Living in Twin Falls and said she loves watching the people at the retirement home light up.

“It’s crazy how just a flower can make them more. It might just be a flower but for someone else it’s something big and I think that’s important,” Dalos said.

Seeing that joy is why Carr continues to be a florist.

“I witness that every day, what flowers bring to people and that’s why I started it, I knew the joy it brought,” Carr said.

ROCHESTER, Minnesota – A longtime Med City florist prepares to celebrate 55 years in Rochester.

On Sunday, Flowers By Jerry will host a celebration to thank their customers for their support over all these years.

“It’s hard to even imagine it’s been 55 years because it’s going fast and business has been very good for us and for the community,” founder Jerry Patton told KIMT News 3. “We provide all the service that we can possibly deliver and that’s why we grew to where we are today.”

Flowers By Jerry opened in 1967, at a time when Patton says there weren’t many businesses like his in the area.

Patton founded the shop after working at another florist where he developed a passion for gardening.

Community members are invited to stop by the florist for a celebration with free gifts, food from Bleu Duck Kitchen and 20% off merchandise storewide.

“We’re grateful to be here for 55 years, but it’s always been hard work,” says owner Kevin Patton. “It’s a family business so what’s great is that we’ve been in it as a family and we’ve grown together as a family and I’m so grateful to be able to work with my family one day to per day.”

The party starts Sunday at 10 a.m. Community members are invited to attend.

CRESTLINE–The idea of ​​opening her own flower shop and greenhouse finally “blossomed” for Jessica Millenbaugh.

The Crestline native now owns The Flower Barn & Crafts, 5877 Lincoln Highway, a flower shop, greenhouse and gift shop brimming with fresh-cut flowers, plants and a range of artificial arrangements, wreaths and handmade crafts.

“I knew that was what I wanted to do in the end, open my own shop and have my own greenhouse,” said Millenbaugh, a Col. Crawford graduate who went on to earn a degree in floral design from Ohio State Agricultural. Institute at Wooster in 2018.

The Flower Barn & Crafts held its grand opening on March 28, giving new customers a taste of spring – and a greenhouse overflowing with colorful flowers, potted plants and hanging baskets, many grown by Millenbaugh herself .

“I think one of the coolest things about it is the energy. Everyone is so excited about it,” Millenbaugh said ahead of the company’s groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday afternoon. “There’s just something about flowers and spring. People are so excited.

The 20-by-30-foot barn-like building has a lean-to in the back, which houses the greenhouse. Renovating the structure was a family project, said Millenbaugh, whose father, Brian Millenbaugh, and fiancé, Mitchell Stuckert, built the counters and shelves and did the finishing work.

Millenbaugh’s passion for plants, however, began at an early age when she helped her mother, Janet Leonhardt, dig up soil for annuals. “His flowerbeds were overdone. I always liked doing that with her and my sisters too. We have a weakness for flowers.

The family also farmed and raised livestock for decades. The grain operation – Leonhardt Farms – was founded by his grandfather, Dorsey Leonhardt.

“He was so special to all of us.

He always pushed me to succeed and find something I loved to do.

As a teenager, Millenbaugh was active in 4-H and a regular at the Crawford County Fair. One of his favorite cows, Stella, inspired The Flower Barn’s black and white logo. “She taught me so many life lessons and created so many wonderful memories in my life,” Millenbaugh said.

“It may be silly to some, but for those who understand this, Stella has been a true four-legged friend, and now not only represents a loyal and humble cow, but also represents a loyal and humble flower business,” said Millenbaugh. on the store’s Facebook page.

Millenbaugh – also an artist who does custom work – sells her acrylic paintings and charcoal drawings to The Flower Barn. Sisters Amber Kovach and Lori Millenbaugh added their handmade napkins, coasters, tumblers and keychains to the gift shop shelves.

A longtime friend, Ashlyn Zerangue, specializes in the succulent and houseplant part of the operation, Millenbaugh said, while a cousin, Kristy Widman, and another friend, Cindy Jones, also took part in setting up the new business.

“It’s been such a big teamwork project to pull it all together. Everyone had their part in it,” she said. “We’re just happy to finally be able to do this, and that was my goal.”

The Flower Barn & Crafts is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

NEWTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Traditional Ukrainian floral wreaths have found their way into the Commonwealth thanks to workshops taught by a Newton florist.

Derby Farm Flowers & Gardens in Piccadilly Square offered Vinok fundraising workshops over the weekend, with proceeds going to Sunflower of Peace, a Newton-based nonprofit that provides medical and humanitarian aid to Ukrainians.

“Women dress up, adorn themselves with these flower crowns. The colors, the flowers have a special meaning and represent different places or regions where they could come from,” Chrislip said.

According to the florist, Ukrainian women have been wearing Vinoks since the 2014 revolution as a symbol of Ukrainian pride and protest.

“We all feel helpless about what is happening in Ukraine right now. We send flowers when we sometimes feel helpless, and when we want to lift ourselves up or show compassion, and I think that’s just a another way to use flowers in the same way.” Chrislip said.

“It was always something he really enjoyed doing because of how it made you feel and how it could impact him,” Reece explained.

Decades later, the small shop is still family owned.

In fact, three generations of Nakamoto work side by side every day.

Today, Beretania Florist is owned by Reece’s mother, Celeste.

Reece’s grandmother and former owner of Beretania Florist, June Nakamoto, is also still working.

“If you love, really love doing something, it makes a big difference. But I have a good family, so I’m really lucky,” June said.

Being her own boss was a blessing, according to June. She was able to see her children, grandchildren and now great-grandchildren flourish in the little flower shop.

Reece has many memories growing up inside Beretania Florist, and now his young daughter does the same.

“As soon as I could talk I was, you know, talking to customers, taking money out and messing up the cash register,” Reece said.

However, all was not rosy for the family business. The pandemic has had its thorns.

“You just said to yourself, ‘Okay, we’ll close, then we’ll come back and everything will be normal,’ but of course that wasn’t the case and it still isn’t,” Celeste explained. Nakamoto Farinas. .

While the demand for flowers is back, there are additional challenges. Shipping delays and supply chain issues are also impacting Beretania Florist.

“Even to this day, it’s really hard to get durable goods,” Celeste said.

Reece said they were just trying to take it day by day.

“So we try to stay lean and do what we can to provide service to our customers and make everyone happy,” Reece said.

Reece and his wife started Hawaii Lei Holderwhich offers beautiful lei by Beretania Florist.

Despite the challenges of running a business, Celeste said, it’s been worth it.

“I feel like I have the best job,” Celeste said. “I guess because like how flowers impact people, and even when we give people like a single flower, they light up, you know?”

June still feels the same. She would like to thank everyone who has supported her family over the years.

Strolling through the charming streets of Walthamstow Village on a bright sunny day, you wouldn’t be wrong to think this was a patch of domestic bliss. Local florist Edna Kim carried the potted plants outside her flower shop on Orford Road inside while her colleague attended to their last customers of the day.

Edna, barely taller than some of the plants she was carrying, is a friendly face to anyone passing by. Despite looking tiny from the outside, her shop was actually quite spacious. It was like a mini jungle with a few clear paths for customers to move around.

“No one came here when I opened 15 years ago”



Edna has seen many changes in Walthamstow Village in the 15 years she has been there

But it wasn’t always a bed of roses for her, as she explained when she moved to the Village 15 years ago. She says: “I opened my florists on Mother’s Day in 2007. I was invited to open a flower shop here by another trader down the street because at the time there were no was nothing like it around, and how can you have a village without a florist?

“They said they needed a flower shop to help revive the village. When I came here, the place was a dump. No one came here and there were only two stores open, but now there are plenty.

But in the 15 years that Edna has been based in Walthamstow Village, she has seen a lot of change. She explained, “There were a lot of families living here who left. Some tenants left because rents got too high and landlords sold when the price of their properties started to rise.

“That was after 2012. Before that you could buy a house here for around £300,000, but now they’re around £1million.”

She added: “There are a lot of new people here, like city yuppies and hipsters, but they sleep here. They don’t really live here in the sense that they have a connection to the community. They just spend in front everyday and don’t even say hello. They don’t care. They never come just to take a look or buy something.

Like many other merchants I spoke to in the village that day, Edna also noted the number of stores that had opened and closed during her stay on Orford Road. Some changes were still visibly underway, with the East London Sausage Company butcher’s shop a few shops away from Edna’s flower shop being refurbished and turned into a cafe.

Neighboring shopkeepers told MyLondon the landlord moved his business to Waltham Abbey after rising rent prices in Walthamstow Village meant keeping the butcher’s shop open on Orford Road no longer made financial sense. Edna’s shop still seems to be doing well despite the rising costs of running a business in Walthamstow Village, but she is aware that the area isn’t what it once was.

She said: “I was encouraged to come here and help save the village, but a lot of people who were here then are no longer here. I may have helped save the village, but I couldn’t do anything for the families who lived here.
