We are so excited to help announce the official launch of Taproot Flowers in Brooklyn, New York! Our dear friend and florist, Rachel Gordon will be bringing 100% local blooms to the borough beginning today!
Inspired by a love of nature, a love of community and a love of social entrepreneurship, Taproot Flowers is committed to sourcing all of their flowers from within 200 miles of their Crown Heights, Brooklyn workshop.
We are super proud of Rachel and her team for their commitment to local flowers. I first met Rachel at the Seasonal Bouquet Project in Philadelphia a couple of years ago. I was lucky enough to spend time with her again last year a the Business of Local Flowers class that I co-taught with my friend Jennie of Love’nFresh Flowers. While Rachel’s commitment was crystal clear, she was nervous, like many budding entrepreneurs are, to take the leap.
Well… here is is! Happy BIRTH-Day Taproot Flowers!
As they get started, I’m asking all of our readers and supporters to show some LOVE to Taproot Flowers today. It’ll just take a .minute, I promise! LIKE them on Facebook and Instagram. Share the good news about their launch on social media (and be sure to tag them). And last, but not least, if you have friends or family in Brooklyn, consider ordering them some flowers this week! It’s the perfect winter pick me up!
We are definitely changing an industry one day at at time! Thanks everyone for your support!
