Downingtown’s Petals Please recycles wedding and funeral flowers into free bouquets for lonely seniors - The Philadelphia Inquirer
Inquirer Morning Newsletter Get the news you need to start your day “It’s such a little gesture,” founder Beth Adams, of Downingtown, said. “But it’s so uplifting.” And not just for bouquet recipients, added Tina Sauk, a retired florist who lives in West Grove and is among 140 Petals Please volunteers: “Even though I don’t know the recipients, it doesn’t matter. The bouquet is made with happiness and given out of love.” The seed that became Petals Please started germinating about two years ago, while Adams, a retired pharmaceutical marketing professional, was working at a hospice. “I went to a local florist and to a funeral home to ask if they had flowers that would [otherwise] be discarded,” recalled Adams, 64. “Myself and a staff member put together little bouquets for patients.” Adams also was inspired by the reaction of a family friend who had once been an avid gardener. “I sent over some flowers I had arranged, and he was so thankful,” she said. “He just missed his garden so much.” Doing research online, Adams found no national organization, let alone a template for putting together a sustainable, all-volunteer flower recovery and repurposing system. But a Northeastern Pennsylvania group was having great success with an approach similar to her idea. So she drove to Scranton, where the volunteers of Petals for Goodness Sake were “so generous and so helpful,” Adams said. “It was, OK, let’s do this.” She began networking from home, calling friends and neighbors. “Because I worked in hospice I knew all of the nursing homes and the assisted living places, and I knew a lot of staff there,” said Adams. “Unfortunately, I knew a lot of funeral directors.” In July 2018, a volunteer picked up the first donation and returned ”with so many flowers in her SUV you couldn’t even see her.” Petals Please has since shifted its arranging sessions from Adams’ dining-room table to a space at Downingtown United Methodist Church. Flowers and vases or other containers are donated, and everything gets recycled, including flower petals, which get taken to a chicken farm in Malvern. Amelia Wondrasch especially enjoys that task. A 15-year-old student at Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square whose family is close to the Adamses, she has been a volunteer pretty much from the beginning. “I’ve always been a big one for recycling and composting,” she said. “And I love the idea of be...

Company uses flowers to send message during local protests - Richmond Free Press
Ms. Shaw, who is African-American.
The statues — Mrs. Walker’s at Broad and Adams streets in Downtown, and Mr. Ashe’s on Monument Avenue, were along the demonstration routes.
“I wanted a way for my company to help more in the black community,” said Ms. Carr, who plans to donate from her floral sales to various organizations supporting Richmond’s African-American community.
With the help of staff and flower donations from Fourteen Acres Flower Farm, Ms. Carr and Ms. Shaw placed flowers around the two monuments on the last weekend in May.
Mrs. Walker’s descendants were heartened.
“That was a beautiful thing as we experience the protests going on in Richmond and the rest of the country,” said Liza Mickens, 22, the greatgreat-granddaughter of Mrs. Walker.
She learned about it when she received a tag on social media by Ms. Shaw, a longtime friend, who had posted a photo of the statue that was ringed with flowers.
“That gesture not only embraced Maggie Walker, who believed the future is in the hands of the youths, it embraces and champions black voices, which is what the monument is all about,” Ms. Mickens said.
“It’s great that we are using all of our talents to champion the cause,” she continued. “The protests and conversations are a continuation of the historic fight for empowerment, equality and equity for all Americans. But it is my generation’s responsibility to leave the world in a better place than when we came into it.”
Ms. Carr has a similar view of history and current events.
“It is sad that police are targeting African-Americans and that economic and educational discrimination is still ingrained in American society, especially after the protests in the 1960s and early ’90s.”
She continued, “All lives don’t matter until black lives matter.”

Plants not seen in Ohio in decades found in Summit, Portage counties - Akron Beacon Journal
Ohio in the 1930s — found in Portage County in September; the black-stemmed spleenwort — a type of fern last seen in Ohio in 1900 — found in Adams County in May; and Vasey’s pondweed — an aquatic plant last seen in Ohio in 1935 — found in Lorain County in June.Gardner said the water marigold was found at a natural lake in Portage County. He said he couldn’t provide additional information, as the landowner who found the species on their property wants to remain anonymous.The Vasey’s pondweed was found by Cleveland Metroparks and Lorain County Metro Parks employees working on aquatic invasive species, while the black-stemmed spleenwort was found by a group of college students studying biology.Garder said finding even one of these kinds of species in a year is impressive, but finding four is almost unheard of."It really tells you that there's still opportunity to find these species," Gardner said. "To find these species that have very specific habitats and very small, narrow niches in our ecosystems is really special."The focus will now be on protecting the habitats where these rare plants were found to ensure the populations there survive and thrive.In Long Lake Fen, Bissell said he’ll be working to remove invasive species — including phragmites, or reed grass; glossy buckthorn, a nonnative shrub that forms dense stands; and narrowleaf cattail — that threaten the rare plants and other native species at Long Lake."I know we're not done finding rare plants there," he said of the fen. "It seems like every couple years, we find something new."Contact reporter Emily Mills at 330-996-3334, firstname.lastname@example.org and @EmilyMills818.
