Petal Share PA gives flowers new purpose
Volunteers Maxine Gilligan and Fran Jones, both of Clarks Summit, snipped stems of flowers that the Dillon Floral Corporation in Bloomsburg donated to the organization.
Mrs. Jones lost her daughter to cancer last year and her husband is battling leukemia.
“It’s a good distraction for me and it lets me help others,” she said.
Ms. Gilligan volunteered for the past three months with Petal Share.
“To the best of my ability, I’m here every time they call,” she said. “If it were me in a nursing home, I would love to get this.”
Repurposing flowers is a national movement, said Mrs. Senofonte, who has been in contact with a similar organization in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Through the Scranton Area Foundation, Petal Share PA became a program of the Greenhouse Project in Scranton and received nonprofit status.
The organization accepts floral and vase donations as well as monetary donations for items including products to preserve the flowers and business cards. Local businesses, including Gerrity’s Supermarket and POSH at the Scranton Club, donate to Petal Share.
To donate or volunteer, visit www.petalsharepa.org or the organization’s Facebook public group, Petal Share PA.

Bring on the bees and flowers, food will blossom

Maryland soon to be a safe haven for bees
Beginning in 2018, bees and beneficial insects will be a little safer in the state of Maryland, thanks to the recently passed Pollinator Protection Act. The new law (Senate Bill 198) will restrict the sale and use of a large class of insecticides linked to the collapse of honey bee colonies and population declines among native bees like bumblebees.
Neonicotinoids (commonly referred to as ‘neo-nics’), include the widely-used chemicals imidcloprid and dinoefurant, and are found in products like Ortho’s Bug B Gon. The chemicals mimic the effects of nicotine, and essentially excite insects to death. Honeybees and bumblebees seem to be especially vulnerable to its effects.
Homeowners will no longer have access to these insecticides beginning in 2018, but you’ll save man flower- and food-producing bees if you choose to avoid such chemicals now.
Remember: No bees, no food!
Native plants? How about our native bees?!
And we’re not just talking about the nonnative honey bee, whose hives have suffered devastating losses both locally and nationally over the past decade. Maryland is home to more than 400 species of native bees — from those impossibly big buzz... (WTOP)May 22, 2015
