Sarasota orchid show, now in its 63rd year, has a flower for everybody - Sarasota Herald-Tribune

Monday of every month at 6 p.m.While there’s plenty of room for beginners interested in orchid keeping, there’s also a lot of fun to be had by more advanced enthusiasts. Look no further than retired orchid taxonomist Stig Dalstrom, known as The Wild Orchid Man, who has lived in Sarasota since moving from Sweden in 1997 and spends his time traveling the world and researching orchids with the support of the Sarasota Orchid Society while making documentaries with filmmaker Darryl Saffer.“There’s so much variety. We don’t know how many different kinds of orchids there are; it could be as many as 35,000 different species — we just don’t know. The more we learn, the less we seem to know for certain,” said Dalstrom, who is traveling to Bhutan next week to help with an orchid conservation project administrated by the country’s National Biodiversity Center.And while there are all different types of orchids, the hobby also attracts enthusiasts from all different walks of life, such as Julien Baruch, who studied economics and finance at New College of Florida before graduating in 2018. He now spends his days working with flowering plants at Krull-Smith Orchids in Apopka and, much like Dalstrom, was attracted by the complexity and the immense variety held by the family of flowering plants.“There’s so much more variety than what you see in your average supermarket or Home Depot. There’s so much more to explore than you realize; you’ve just got to keep your eye out for it,” said Baruch. “Keeping orchids is my favorite addiction.” ...

Roses are red, violets blue. Turns out Valentine’s flowers can be recycled, too - Los Angeles Times

Baltimore that will pick up the old flowers free of charge. Those hosting a big event with lots of floral arrangements can contact ReVased in advance to schedule a pick-up. The company repackages the flowers for its delivery service. For every arrangement purchased, ReVased also donates flowers to nonprofits including Levindale Geriatric Center and Hospital, Goddard Riverside Senior Center and Ronald McDonald House in New York.Sisters Arielle and Aviva Vogelstein started ReVased in 2019 after realizing how many of their own wedding flowers ended up in the trash. Although ReVased primarily works with weddings, it also repurposes flowers from business conferences, bar mitzvahs and holiday and birthday parties. “We think there is too much waste involved and want to make ourselves as accessible as possible,” Arielle says.The sisters’ venture received a boost from two tech accelerators, Conscious Venture Lab and AccelerateBaltimore, through which they raised $125,000 in funding. Next up, they hope to expand their operation into Washington D.C. It’s long been a secret in the wedding industry that donating flowers to charity after the ceremony can be a tax write-off — a convenient benefit considering the average U.S. wedding costs almost $30,000. Advertisement Nonprofits such as the Knoxville, Tenn.-based Random Acts of Flowers don’t resell blooms but instead help facilitate these donations. Founded in 2008, the group works with hospitals and nursing homes to brighten patients’ days with the leftover flowers, which come from weddings, funerals, and grocery store surplus. In the last 10 years, it’s delivered more than 340,000 bouquets and repurposed more than 356,000 vases.April Churchill, founder of the Reflower Project in Boston, has a similar goal with her nonprofit, which she started in 2015. Florists, event planners, and wholesalers in the metropolitan area can contact her to pick up their surplus, which the Reflower Project then donates to nursing homes and women’s shelters such as Rosie’s Place. It’s not only good for the environment but also for patients’ recovery. A 2009 study showed that those in hospital rooms decorated with flowers and potted plants needed less postoperative pain medication, had lower blood pressure and pulse rates, and were less anxious and tired than those without. “You can really see the difference with flowers and how much joy they can bring people,” Churchill says.
