Bay City Flowers to close | Local News Stories - Half Moon Bay Review
Updated 4:15 p.m.: Bay City Flowers, long a stalwart of the Coastside agricultural industry, announced on Tuesday it was closing its doors. The move would appear to affect dozens of jobs and local social service agencies are standing by to help."After four generations and 110 glorious years in floriculture, we at Bay City Flower Co. have decided that the time has come for us to wind down the selling of our flowers," said Bay City CEO Harrison Higaki in a prepared release. The release said the last day the business would ship flowers would be Nov. 10.Higaki said in the release that there were many reasons for the decision to shutter the business, but that chief among them was the fact that it was increasingly difficult to operate a national flower farm "in the costliest place in the nation."
The release said the company would seek "alternative uses" for its infrastructure on the coast.Workers told officials at Puente de la Costa Sur on Tuesday that they had been laid off. Puente Executive Director Rita M... Nov 2, 2017

San Francisco artist festoons Redwood City with wildlife bearing flowers
So when Redwood City non-profit (the Redwood City Improvement Association) offered her six walls around town and asked her to beautify the South Bay city, the results were leaping deer on the side of La Tartine, squirrels on the parking garages, and foxes chilling on public benches.Kim tells Curbed SF that the “Flora From Fauna” series (the title refers to the chrysanthemums each creature bears in its mouth) started off as a slightly different, more domestic concept.“I wanted residents to submit photos of their dogs jumping in play so we’d have joyful dogs painted all throughout Redwood City,” says Kim. It was a neat idea, but “the committee wasn’t sure how many good photos we’d turn up.”The final project does still include a dog, but from there the concept branched out to local wildlife. “They’re meant to look like they exist within the city infrastructure, so they have shadows but no backgrounds,” she explains.The flowers are a reference to Redwood City’s historical chrysanthemum craze, originally sparked by Japanese immigrants. In the ‘20s the city was the “chrysanthemum center of the world,” exporting so many of the flowers that it amounted to a $7 million industry in 1926. That’s the equivalent of more than $96 million today. World War II squashed the peninsula’s flower industry via internment of the most prolific grower, though, and the Bay Area economy never did quite tu... (Curbed SF)Jan 12, 2017
DOROTHY BUKOWSKI, MOTHER OF VOD EDITOR, PASSES AWAY DEC. 22; VISITATION AND FUNERAL DEC. 26 ...
Dorothy Ellis married my father Robert Bukowski, a native of Bay City, Michigan, on Oct. 18, 1947. They lived for a short while in an apartment building on Lothrop in Detroit, near West Grand Blvd. and Second. That was my first home. When my mother became pregnant with my brother Michael, they moved to a small bungalow at 19189 Murray Hill, where they raised the rest of us—Mark, Paul, John, Eileen and Jean.
Father Robert and mother Dorothy Bukowski with Diane Bukowski in her office at Detroit Human Rights Department, late 1990’s.
I will never know how my mother did it, cooped up in that little house with seven children. She told me the fifties were a blur to her. The family had no car for several years. My father traveled to his job by streetcar and bus and took us grocery-shopping in a little red wagon. After he finally bought a car, he used it to work at the small tax and accounting firm he established in 1959, the Bob Bukowski Tax Service, at 7 Mile and Conant. He worked very hard to support all of us, coming home during tax season to fall asleep on the couch. My brother John and sister Eileen later went to work with him, and carried the business on after he retired.
My mother did not learn to drive until many decades later, but when she did, it was like letting a bird out of its cage. I was highly distressed when she gave up driving at the age of 92, knowing how much it had meant to her.
My family belonged to Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish during its time in Detroit. I was astonished to discover in 1983, when our union local AFSCME 457 participated in a march commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1963 March on Washington, that famed civil rights hero and martyr Viola Liuzzo also belonged to our parish. I met Mrs. Liuzzo’s children on that march. I discovered Dr. King, union leaders Walter Reuther and Jimmy Hoffa, and numerous other nationally known icons attended her funeral held in our small church, which had been converted from the grade school’s gymnasium.
My Aunt and Godmother Gloria Shuster, Cousin Tim Shuster, and Mother during one of her many visits to see her sister in Florida.
Viola Liuzzo’s spirit must have lived on in my parents, both of whom supported me in my lifetime of political work. My father brought my sister Eileen to see me speak at an anti-war rally in Kennedy Square in the early ‘70’s. He always told people he was proud that I was a “fighter.” My parents had a subscription to the Michigan Citizen during the time I reported for it from 2... (voiceofdetroit)Aug 15, 2016
Farm+Fish+Flower: Annual tour highlights coastal agriculture, sustainability
San Mateo County’s last operating dairy, a premier aquaponics farm and two sites that have won awards for their sustainable farming practices — the Bay City Flower Company and Rocket Farms, McHugh said.
While much of today’s focus is on new tech companies along the Silicon Valley Bayfront, McHugh said the agricultural industry on the coast is where tradition intersects with innovation.
“Some of these old farms are now into high-tech processes. Ouroboros [Farms] is all hydroponically grown in water, no soil. … Some of these are the old farm meets new technology and the others are, ‘how can we eat healthier and more sustainable,’” McHugh said. “We have certainly changed it over the years to keep up with the industry and what we have here.”
Long-standing favorite stops include Markegard Ranch, where grass-fed cattle roam on the family’s large property back dropped by pristine ocean views; Harley Farms, where visitors can see baby goats and how fresh cheese is made; Oku Nursery, a 100-year-old family-owned flower farm; and much more.
McHugh said they changed the name of the tour this year to better align with its current offerings, while adding that Pillar Point Harbor has been a destination for several years now. There, visitors can learn about sustainable fisheries and at various times of year, can even buy a range of fresh offerings like crab and salmon directly off the boats of local fishermen.
“You can literally have it on your table an hour after it was caught. That’s pretty impressive, and we have that luxury here,” McHugh said.
This year, the tour has five new additions, including the Half Moon Bay History Association’s “Downtown Tour,” a guided walk where attendees can learn about the rich history of the quaint coastal town and see some of its historic buildings. New farms that will be featured this year include the educational HEAL Project, Ananda Valley Farm, Miramar Farms and a recently expanded Harley Farms’ Bunnies, Berries and Secret Garden.
McHugh said the tour highlights unique coastal businesses upon which many rely, and is in line with Half Moon Bay being an eco-tourist destination. It’s also an opportunity for the public to learn directly from knowledgeable pros.
“This is a way to help our farms to educate people about sustainable farming and about the flower industry,” McHugh said. “A lot of us, probably most of us, buy organic to a certain extent. Whether it’s organic in Safeway, or they’re going to Whole Foods or New Leaf. These are relatively small farms that are producing our food and some of the new technology that is being used in the bigger ones, like Bay City and Rocket Farms, they’ve won environmental awards for.”
Tickets are $30 per person and must be purch... (San Mateo Daily Journal)
