Florists 'bomb' Philly mailboxes for 2020 election ballots - WHYY
Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike in Chestnut Hill.
The arch starts at the bottom with deep copper-colored amaranth tassels, moves through a gradient of orange and dark yellow hues, and ends with a spear of bright golds and buttery yellows pointing toward the mailbox.
“We have lots of dahlias. It’s prime dahlia season in October,” said Love. “They start deep and rich at the bottom of the arch, then it gets the bright happiness close to the mailbox. That’s the goal: be bright and happy at the mailbox.”
Love is both a farmer and florist. She grows everything she uses on a five-acre, certified natural farm in Roxborough. The bread and butter of her business had been weddings, but that dried up this year. Last April, her prospects were dire.
Over the summer she launched a flower delivery service where people can pre-order a box of flowers and have it delivered weekly to their door. Called Porch Petals, Love keeps the delivery radius tight – she only services Philadelphia’s Northwest neighborhoods near her farm.
To her surprise, it worked. Porch Petals caught on and saved her business.

“Porch Petals is a COVID pivot, but it proves our community here in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy – they are phenomenal. I would start weeping if I think about it too much,” she said. “This community saved our farm.”
Love is fortunate that she is both a grower and an arranger: she supplies herself. Other florists who rely on shipped flowers have fared much worse as international supply chains have broken down during the global pandemic. Flowers, after all, cannot sit in warehouses.
United By Blooms is ostensibly a get-out-the-vote campaign addressing anxieties about voting by mail and the tenuous financial position of the Postal Service. Love says, “I don’t have answers to any of that.”
More important to her is that this floral arrangement be a love letter to the community that proves, even during a pandemic, flow... Jun 19, 2020

Among the dead flowers at the Academy of Natural Sciences, a Civil War mystery unfolds | Mike Newall
It starts each workday when the curatorial assistant at the Academy of Natural Sciences climbs onto the Chestnut Hill West. All the way into Center City, she makes sure to notice the paulownias growing beside the tracks, incredible sprays of purple flowers. The trees of heaven, immortalized in the classic novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, that sprout from cracks in the sidewalk. The azaleas and rhododendrons in their summer grandeur, planted in people’s backyards, visible only to their owners — and to Benamy and her fellow travelers.
She likes to be surprised.
Most mornings, she will press play on her ancient iPod, and to the strains of classical music, Celtic lilts, or jazz riffs, she will begin her work. There’s a reason she stares at the flora from the train: For the last two years, flowers have been her entire focus. Benamy, 61, has worked at the academy for 35 years. First, she cataloged fossils, insects, and mollusks. And now, she works with the museum’s collect... Apr 6, 2018
Love and flowers; perfect match for Hill urban pioneer
Fresh Flowers workshop at The Woodlands in West Philly.by Elizabeth CoadyThe forecast called for a foot of snow on the first day of spring, vexing Chestnut Hill’s nationally renowned flower farmer Jennie Love. It’s late March, and the land that will yield 200 different varieties this growing season under the auspices of Love ‘n Fresh Flowers is still sleeping.The cold and snow threatened the first blooms on the earliest tulips to break through the soil, and the dull gray skies made Love ”unhappy. It’s definitely super dormant. It shouldn’t be this dormant.”Love will tell you that worry and the vagaries of weather are two constants in the life of a farmer. 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 s...
