They created the Uber of flower delivery. Then disaster struck. Could they find redemption?
At the time, Kori was in a long-distance relationship with a woman in Philadelphia and, naturally, sent her a lot of flowers. “I just kept having bad experience after bad experience,” he recalls. “It crescendoed on her birthday. I sent her this bouquet and held off on calling because I thought the flowers would surprise her. Late into the day, it hadn’t shown up. I called the company and they just told me, ‘It’s coming, it’s coming.’ ”The flowers never came — and Kori later learned that his experience was common. Flower-delivery services are among the worst-ranked industries in customer reviews. E-commerce was supposed to make everything cheaper, faster and more efficient, but Kori argues that the opposite happened with online flower delivery. Major companies like 1-800-Flowers and FTD (also known as Florists’ Transworld Delivery) operate essentially as aggregators. When you buy a bouquet through them, your order is placed on what the industry calls the “flower wire,” a practice that dates to 1910, when a group of florists formed a cooperative to trade orders nationwide via telegraph. A local florist fills the order, but without that florist’s branding and with the aggregator taking a cut.Those local florists, the thinking goes, will prioritize the buyers who walk through their door, pay full price and take home a bouquet stamped with their logo. “It’s often why you hear that flowers [ordered through an aggregator] got delivered at the end of the day, or they didn’t survive that long,” Kori says. “The florists are going to use their best stems on their core customers.”A 1-800-Flowers spokesperson called the notion that its ordering system may compromise bouquet quality “ridiculous,” adding that the company’s wire service “has established and maintained the industry’s most stringent business standards for participating florists and conducts audits regularly for quality.” FTD did not respond to requests for comment.Linda Bolton Weiser, a senior analyst for financial services firm D.A. Davidson who follows the floral industry, is skeptical of the ability of a small start-up like UrbanStems to take on established players like 1-800-Flowers and FTD. “These little companies come in and out over the years,” she says, “and they all have a solution to a different thing.” But the industry has especially thin profit margins, buoyed by holidays like Valentine’s and Mother’s Day, she explains. As such, companies like 1-800-Flowers have pivoted to selling a large portfolio of gift items, not just flowers.Undaunted, Kori and Sheely set out to disrupt the middleman-laden industry by buying their own stems from farms in South and Central America, designing their own bouquets, and hiring delivery couriers as salaried employees. This approach was tested on the company’s first Valentine’s Day in 2014. Two days earlier, a storm had dumped six inches of snow onto Washington, rendering the roads treacherous and prompting changes to many delivery destinations, as offices closed for snow days. The co-founders and some friends took to...Apr 20, 2018
Want to fight crime? Plant some flowers with your neighbor.
This finding is similar to data from other cities. From 1999 to 2008, for example, the city of Philadelphia cleaned up 4,436 vacant lots, signaling “ownership” with fencing, benches, plantings and the like. Gun assaults in areas where the interventions occurred dropped by 29 percent over three years. Nuisance crimes like loitering and vandalism declined 30 percent.Philadelphia also saw economic gains from maintaining empty land and fixing up abandoned properties. According to an economic analysis published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2016, for every dollar spent reoccupying an abandoned building, taxpayers saved $5 in potential criminal justice costs. Cleaned-up vacant lots saved the city even more: $26 per dollar spent.People in areas of Philadelphia with newly greened lots also reported exercising more and experiencing less stress, presumably because they felt more comfortable being outside.Resilient citiesOne likely reason that crime drops after joint neighborhood improvement projects is community engagement. Residents in the University Corridor intervention area reported participating more in neighborhood watches, block associations and community events than in the area where residents didn’t undertake improvement projects.In other words, when neighbors work together to clean up, say, an empty lot, they don’t just eliminate a href="http://www.nytim...Apr 20, 2018

Love and flowers; perfect match for Hill urban pioneer
But the promise of bounty motivates. “I love flowers; there’s no question about it,” said Love, hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as an “urban farming pioneer.” … “They’re my favorite thing on earth.”If Love’s meteoric success as a flower farmer is any measure, then the feeling is mutual. In the nine years since she planted her first seeds on two acres of leased land in Upper Roxborough, Love has catapulted to national attention for her wedding floral designs and her efforts to promote sustainable local farming.Earlier this month she finalized the purchase of four adjacent acres on which she plans to expand her yield. Frequently described as “fresh,” “unique,” “textural,” “lush” and ”unexpected,” Love’s floral stylings are like a boozy cocktail party where each lovely variety vies for your attention, and the wallflowers provide the necessary backdrop.“It’s been a really good journey,” the 30-something (she declined to disclose her exact age) admits, “but it’s a lot of hard work and a complex business that I run … It’s a strategic game.”Raised on a dairy farm in Central Pennsylvania, Love planted her first flower patch at age 4 — nasturtiums — in her mother’s kitchen garden. “Farming gets in your blood,” she confessed.Jennie Love, of Chestnut Hill, has catapulted to national attention for her wedding floral designs and her efforts to promote sustainable local farming.Yet when it was time to go to college, she couldn’t wait to flee. She attended Muhlenberg College in Allentown, majoring in communications and comparative world literature. For nearly a decade afterwards she toiled as a writer in corporate jobs. “I dreamed of wearing high heels and suits for some reason,” she said.Then when the grind soured, she yearned to get her “hands in the dirt.” She began volunteering...
