Nothing Says ‘I Love You’ Like Secondhand Roses - The New York Times
Some would be going to subscribers who receive a delivery once a month for $29. The rest would be donated to a Lincoln Square neighborhood center.ReVased customers “don’t know exactly which flowers they are going to get,” said Aviva Vogelstein, who quit her job this month as a lawyer to work for the company full time. “That makes it exciting.”Office space, scooters, and now, floral arrangements: The sharing economy has trickled down to the flower industry, with more companies across the city committed to either extending the temporary joy flowers bring or to reusing or composting them more responsibly.After all, flowers are big business, and there’s room for growth. This year, for Valentine’s Day alone, Americans are expected to spend $2.3 billion on flowers, up from $1.9 billion last year, according to the National Retail Federation.In a city like New York, where special events happen on a daily basis and cut flowers are in demand year-round, it was only a matter of time before eco-minded entrepreneurs saw an opportunity.“Valentine’s Day is an incredibly wasteful holiday in terms of its environmental impact, but if you’re looking at the year as a whole, events are way worse,” said Liza Lubell, who runs Peartree Flowers, which specializes in large installations.A typical large event like a wedding or gala can produce up to 100 bags of flowers, Ms. Lubell said. “It’s not just centerpieces on a table anymore,” she continued. “The whole ceiling could be filled with flowers.” So Ms. Lubell created a second company, Garbage Goddess, which provides eco-cleanup services for events in New York City, the Hamptons, the Hudson Valley and soon, Los Angeles. “We try to find alternative homes for everything,” she said. “We look at recycling as our last resort.” Her goal is to have less than two bags of garbage for each event.Often, Garbage Goddess will donate event flowers to textile designers like Cara Piazza, who uses the flowers to make natural dyes in her Brooklyn studio.“One bouquet from a wedding will get you a scarf and a kimono,” Ms. Piazza said. “I will get nine massive garbage bags full of flowers from events that will last me a month.”“Flower repurposing is one of the biggest things happening in the events industry right now,” said Nicki Fleischner, the founder of Plan with Purpose, a website ...

Obituary: Richard E. Michaud Sr. - Press Herald
In 1982 they moved the business from his garage to a new building on Lincoln Street in South Portland. It was then he became a distributor for Tom’s Foods. They developed a strong business relationship which carried on for more than 16 years. The business continued to grow and in 1992 Dick developed a food brokering company which gave the Michaud Distributors name a presence all over New England and upstate New York. In 1996, the company expanded once again, moving to its new location in Scarborough which he quickly outgrew. The company then built a larger facility in Saco where they employed over 200 employees and served four States with their snack food business. Throughout his business career, Dick mentored many people and with his inspiration giving them drive and encouragement. He was an icon in the industry and greatly respected by his peers. He was a pioneer in the snack food business reaching the national level of snack food distribution. Throughout his career, Dick earned many awards and accolades in top sales and distribution from national snack food companies.A believer that with hard work came good play. Dick enjoyed spending time at the hunting camp on Rowe Lake with his uncles, brother, sons and nephews. The excitement that would come over him and his brother, Dana, was comical. The two county boys heading north to be with their uncles was a treat to watch. The memories created with each visit would only hold them over for the year, but for their families it was a lifetime.Dick was an accomplished race car driver setting many records in the drag car racing circuit. In 1965, Dick set the east coast record for his class, hitting 168 mph in a quarter mile, a title he still holds today. He was a member of the Punta Gorda Elks Lodge and the Order of Moose.

Over Easy: Flower power in the age of aggression - Press Herald
Fighting Fiddleheads of Lincoln County, or the Brunswick Begonias, or the Newcastle Nasturtiums.
Flowers have a calming effect on people. Back in 1967, young people were asked to wear flowers in their hair when visiting San Francisco for what was labeled the Summer of Love. That was flowers, not guns or blackjacks or any other kind of weapon.
If we adopt this idea, anger and violence may be reduced, because who wants to hit someone dressed like a begonia?
And then there’s the ritual holiday sporting events that mark some special day. For example, someday might we not be treated to our classic Thanksgiving turkey while on the television is the special holiday football game pitting the Lupins of Lincoln Academy against the Delphiniums of Morse. Who knows?

Fairchild's Million Orchid Project Brings Native Plants to Miami Beach's Lincoln Road - Miami New Times
Next time you find yourself walking on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, pay special attention to the plant life around you, and prepare to be dazzled by an abundance of orchids in bloom in the trees. The flowers are part of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Million Orchid Project, a five-year program that aims to reintroduce orchids in public spaces. Orchids now enliven Coral Gables and Coconut Grove; this leg of the project was funded by Stephen Bittel, chairman and founder of the local real-estate firm Terranova Corporation, as a gift to the City of Miami Beach. Many varieties of orchid are native to South Florida. More than a century ago, the fragrant flowers would have been a common sight in trees throughout the area. But a lethal combination of exploitation — through agriculture, the houseplant industry, and urban development — has reduced the population of native orchids to the point they cannot recover without human assistance.Enter the Million Orchid Project.Pedestrians can enjoy 500 brightly colored orchids while str...
