Historically Speaking: Florists a big part of Dover - Seacoastonline.com
Merchants National Bank and president of the Dover Realty Co. He and his wife, who had been Ada Massingham, lived at 4 West Concord St., and he remained active in the business until his death in 1946. Ada then took over and with her nephew, Tom Massingham, managed the operation until her death in 1958.Tom Massingham had been born in England, but at age 5 was sent by his family to Dover to live with the Shortridges. As a young man he worked in the business, served in World War II, and upon his return and at Ada's death, became the owner of the Garrison Hill Greenhouses. In 1950, he was one of the first to construct a building on the nascent Miracle Mile, at what was then called Page's corner, opposite Glenwood Avenue. It was originally intended to be a retail flower and gift shop, but on Nov. 25-26 Mother Nature intervened at the Garrison Hill site with close to hurricane force winds that shattered greenhouse glass, entirely uprooting one building which landed on another, and causing an estimated $50,000 damage, well over a half million dollars in today's money.As a result, production at that location was limited and a much-reduced greenhouse space was grafted on to the building at Central Avenue. Over time the original greenhouse structures were dismantled and removed, the space eventually covered by apartment buildings, and the only reminder we have of what was there is the name of the street, Floral Avenue. (The business remains in operation, however, with the next generation, Thomas Massingham as owner, located in the small plaza at the corner of Chestnut and Fourth streets.)This was not the only florist operation in town. Recently we mentioned the Elliott Greenhouses set back some distance from the Dover Point Road (the location of the present Ponte Place development). This was a major producer of roses, with a national, even international, clientele. For a time there was a retail store, Thornwood, in the building now occupied by Patty B's restaurant.Bob and Barbara Drew had a small greenhouse on Tolend Road. There was Bob's Flower Shop, Robert Ham proprietor, at 2 Central Ave. In the mid-1940s, there was Brown's Flower Shop (Aaron and Ralph Brown, owners) at 107 Washington St., which advertised being open on Sunday morning.The Whatnot Flowers and Gifts was at 517 Central Ave., owned by Edward and Natalie Duffy, with "a full line of religious articles."Perley Lee and his wife Mabelle had a greenhouse and retail store at 120 Stark Avenue next door to their home. In the mid-’80s the Siranian family at 103 Stark Ave. had a small greenhouse, and just down the road, beyond the current Dover Chevrolet complex, John Viola, who worked many years for the Lees, had two small greenhouses behind his family home.A larger, longer-lived business was Meader's Greenhouses at 21 Back River Road (the remains of some of the greenhouse buildings are still visible). The Meader family had deep roots in the Dover area. John lived at the corner of Back River and the Durham Road. Herbert lived just beyond the gre... Feb 27, 2020
Sunrise brings local flower power to Farmers Market | - Concord Clayton Pioneer
But 100 percent of the fresh-cut flowers offered at the Concord farmers market are grown right here in California.
Steve Fernandes brings fresh-cut flowers to the Concord farmers market from Sunrise Nursery in Watsonville.
It’s important to seek out fresh-cut flowers that are locally grown, just as you would buy local produce.
Purchasing imports means your selection is limited to flowers that can handle shipping and being out of water for several days. Growing and buying flowers locally gives consumers more of a selection. Plus, they are fresher, support the local community and have fewer “flower miles” – the distance flowers travel and the energy consumed in getting them from the place of production to our homes.
Another reason to select flowers from a local source is that, just like with produce, you’re able to talk with the farmer who grew them. And locally grown flowers are usually less expensive than those imported from other states or countries.
Half Moon Bay and Watsonville have the perfect climate for growing gorgeous flowers and plants. The closer to the source your purchase is, the better the product will be. Local nurseries and flower growers are proud of their offerings and work hard to achieve the best flowers and plants available.
The Concord farmers market has wonderful, fresh-cut bouquets from Sunrise Nursery in Watsonville. Maria and Jose Fernandes started the nursery in 1985. Their sons Steve and Tim now operate the nursery on about 30 acres of open growing fields and in six acres of greenhouses. They produce more than 30 different varieties of cut flowers, from roses to sunflo... Feb 27, 2020
New recreational marijuana shop offers different type of Valentine’s Day flower - MLive.com
Molino said.Kinship opened at 2199 N. Concord Road, just off I-94, for recreational marijuana sales on Jan. 30. It’s the first recreational marijuana shop in Parma Township and third in Jackson County. The other two, Choice Labs and 20 Past 4, are in Leoni Township.This is Kinship’s first location, but the business plans to open additional marijuana shops in Monroe County, near where Molino is from.Of Molino’s four business partners, two of them are his brothers. The Molinos ventured into the marijuana business after one of their brothers died from ALS about a decade ago. Doctors prescribed him medical marijuana pills to help his calorie intake and his nerves, before he died.That’s when the Molinos learned medical marijuana can be “another source of wellness,” and there was opportunity in the market for the brothers to pursue it. Kinship opened for medical marijuana in September before getting a license also allowing them to sell recreationally.Kinship offers flower, cartridges, CBD, edibles, topicals and more, for medical and recreational marijuana, Assistant Manager Kathleen Bailey said."The edible gummies on the recreational side are like hotcakes," Bailey said. "Quicker than I can say 'edible gummies,' they're off the shelf."The 2,400-square-foot building was built from scratch, and two more buildings are on their way up on the property so Kinship can grow and process their own marijuana. From the parking lot to the security system to the building itself, Molino said Kinship wants to dispel stereotyp... Dec 18, 2019
At Millbrook Farm in Concord, an early Christmas miracle - The Boston Globe
CONCORD — To reach Millbrook Farm from Boston, you must go out of your way. Take Route 2 west into historic Concord, past thickets of snow-drenched woods and picturesque Colonials. If you know where you’re going, you’ll find it, after a series of right turns, tucked back on the Cambridge Turnpike before the road abruptly closes to anyone passing through.The family-run nursery — which specializes in flowers and hanging plants in the spring, pumpkins and mums in the fall, and Christmas trees and wreaths in the winter — has survived its share of troubles.Sal Giurleo, 80, the brusque family patriarch, started the business 31 years ago, following in the footsteps of his father, an Italian immigrant who grew vegetables for First National grocery stores in the 1940s and ’50s. Big-box stores like Home Depot have taken a bite out of the gardening industry. For small growers, such as the Giurleos, it’s harder than ever to compete.But this year has been their worst. When construction began on the... Oct 12, 2018
