A mother's legacy blooms in Far NE Heights
So many flowers,” Yvonne Beckley chuckles. “In the front yard, back yard, side yard. She even had flowers in the front patch of ground on the other side of the sidewalk. Verbena and iris in the back, roses and peonies on the side. They were everywhere. I used to get tired of her getting me to walk around to see and sniff all of them.”Her mother, Angelina Garcia, had a knack for making things bloom. Children. Friendships. Flowers.Especially flowers.AdvertisementContinue reading“People would come just to look at her flowers, especially those peonies,” Beckley recalls. “She was a master gardener way before the term existed. She just learned by doing.”Angelina GarciaBeckley tells me about those peonies, how in her mother’s loving hands they were transformed from tuberous roots gnarled like an old woman’s fingers into aromatic clouds of pink and white and crimson, some as big as softballs, so many years ago.These were flowers of historical significance, Beckley explains, rescued from the gardens of the Alvarado Hotel, a magnificent Spanish Mi...Mar 30, 2017
Inside Popup Florist, Fashion's Latest Favorite Flowers
Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, the Maryland native was quickly scooped up as a designer for the now-defunct brand Beckley, where she was given near-complete creative control. “It was sort of my dream job in fashion,” she says. “I worked with the owner really closely, we did three collections a year and we had our own stores to put them in, so it was amazing. We ended up closing in November, [the founder Melissa Akkaway] wanted to focus on her family and I think fashion is just really hard right now.”Going from her dream gig to unemployed at 25 left Hayes wondering what the next step was — and what would top her previous gig. “I had a brief moment of ‘oh my God, what am I going to do with my life,’” she says. “And then I thought I should really start doing florals or events, something else that’s another passion of mine. So one night, in January of 2016, I was like, I should start something called Popup Florist because then I don’t have to have a permanent space. And I signed up for the Instagram right away.”The social media app has been the main driver in her success. After her first pop-up at West Village coffee shop The Elk, for Valentine’s Day in 2016, she continued with small pop-ups before moving into Gansevoort Market in June. But Instagram word-of-mouth has been the biggest source of business. “Eva Chen is probably one of my bigger clients; she’ll mention me in her Instagram story, and when she does, [I always] feel like someone reaches out to me,” Hayes says. “Emily Weiss from Glossier put [my work] on her Instagram story and then after that did another post of my business card. It’s gone exactly how I wanted to — I work with fashion brands and beauty brands, and I haven’t had to do any corporate work really. I’ve been able to work with my dream clients. Instagram ...

Earth, Wind and Flowers install new officers
Article submitted by Mary Lee Minor
The Earth, Wind and Flowers Garden Club greeted two new members Doug and Kim Beckley when the club met at the Bucyrus Public Library.
The group dined from a buffet table of harvest dishes prepared with garden products. 2016-2017 officers were installed by Mary Lee Minor who suggested they each consider being wedded to the club. Nosegays of fresh plant materials focused on red for Susan Maynard, president, pink for Cheryl Corney, vice-president, blue for Deb Pigman, and gold for treasurer, Joy Lauthers.
Club members heard a summary by June Gebhardt, of the recent flower show “All Aboard”, held at the train station. A decision was made to purchase a brick as a donation to the Bucyrus Preservation Society. Funding was approved to the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs, and to the Crawford Park District. Shirley Chapman praised teamwork on the club’s plantings and maintenance on the city square.
Two new projects for the city were discussed. Cheryl Corney circulated the program schedule for the year.
To close the evening, everyone shared the plants, bulbs and seeds th... (WBCO)May 3, 2016
Holistic Health and Wellness Fair: A day of healing in Charleston
“Health care is America is totally broken. It’s too expensive and the system is too corrupt,” said the Beckley-based internist and medical botanist.
Amjad is a self-described “naturalist” who emphasizes herbal remedies and alternative remedies in the face of a corporate medical system that emphasizes expensive interventions and costly procedures and medicines.
Amjad, who has written scores of books, monographs and articles about natural remedies, will be a featured speaker at Saturday’s free Holistic Health and Wellness Fair, which runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 520 Kanawha Blvd. West.
The event features four other guest speakers, more than 30 vendor booths, specialty foods, raffles and free demonstrations and group practice from 9:30 to 11 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. to mark World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day (Qi Gong is a Chinese moving meditation exercise).
Amjad will speak at 11:30 a.m. and then again at 1 p.m., on the topic “Treating Common Illnesses with Herbal and Natural Medicine.”
He has written on such subjects as “Medical Botany of the Eastern United States,” “Common Medicinal Plants of Appalachia,” “Wild Flowers of West Virginia,” “Pomegranate: Anatomy of a Divine Remedy,” and “Tea: Elixir of Life.” (See his website for more titles: www.jmcnaturalmedicine.com.)
Amjad also wrote a book on “Catfish, Man of the Woods... (Charleston Gazette-Mail (subscription))Apr 28, 2016
