GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
In Canada, Melanie Harrington established Dahlia May Flower Farms on her family farm in Trenton, Ontario after reading Benzakein's book and deciding to take a workshop on Floret Farm in Washington. With over 60,000 Instagram followers (@dahliamayflowerfarm), Harrington has no problem marketing her sustainably grown, unique and often heirloom varieties from her roadside stand to local florists.
The beauty of flowers, of course, is that they sell themselves. "A lot of trends from the local-food movement are definitely spilling over", Melanie told Ben when he dropped by the farm where she now produces row upon row of colourful flowers for cutting. "A handful of commercial greenhouses in the Niagara area have also been switched over to marijuana production, which puts a crunch on supply of greenhouse space. There's a lot of trends coming together, but I'm just happy to focus on what I enjoy doing – being creative and growing beautiful flowers."
Located in Thornhill Ontario, Antonio Valente is a perfect example of how the farmer-florist trend is taking hold even in more urban environments. Valente was a substitute teacher with a passion for flowers when he started selling cut flowers from the beds he kept in his parent's backyard.
Also marketing himself through Instagram, where he posts rich photography from his garden as well as how-to videos at @antonionvalenteflowers, he recently took over his parent's half-acre property and still can't grow enough to meet demand. "I'm competing with larger growers who are producing acres of flowers, so I grow varieties that a florist wouldn't typically find from a wholesaler, heirlooms such as dahlias, Gerrie Hoek and Pam Howden, and foxglove Sutton's apricot. This allows me to differentiate myself and compete with the big guys."
Florist Rebecca De Oliveira, of Blush & Bloom Flower Studio, is buying more of her fresh cut flowers from these farmer-florists as the trend continues. De Oliveira's enthusiasm was apparent... Jul 26, 2018
Grieving families protest 'duplicitous' website that reposts death notices to sell flower deliveries
Its CEO is Paco Leclerc of Montreal, according to his LinkedIn page.
Earlier this year, the parents of an Ontario child who died of cancer said they were "absolutely gutted" to see their son's obituary used in this way.
Similar complaints in Newfoundland led to suggestions from a lawyer that the practice of copying text from published obituaries violates intellectual property law, just as much as if Everhere had cut and pasted a literary short story.
The site offers the chance to post free messages of condolence, and it advertises flower deliveries through Bloomstoday, a florist based in Virginia that coordinates with local flower delivery services.
In the new Alberta case, Rick Laursen, who works in health and safety in the oil industry, moved into his parents' house in Calgary recently to help when his father Erik, 83, was diagnosed with cancer. Erik's wife and Rick's mother Margaret, 92, has vascular related dementia, and would often ask about her husband. Rick would explain that he was very sick, but then she would forget and ask again. He found he was causing her fresh grief over and over again, multiple times a day.
After consulting with her physician and an expert with the Alberta health system, he settled on a plan of telling her that Erik was tired and needed to rest. Rick recalled the doctor saying the "best you can do is tell her he's not here right now and eventually she will stop asking … You are causing her more harm than good by making her live (with) something she cannot process."
She still does not know he died last week, and she did not attend the funeral on the weekend. She has never used a computer, so the online aspect did not bother Rick.
He gave details to a local funeral home, but then a modified version appeared on Everhere.com: "Sadly, on July 4th, 2018, Erik Laursen of Calgary, Alberta left us for a better place. Family and friends can send flowers and condolences in memory of the loved one …"
Much of the text had been copied word for word. Rick said they "completely stole from the real obituary."
But that opening quotation was not only newly written, it also managed to misinform mourne... Jun 14, 2018
