Local Zinnias and Sunflowers from Greenhouse 17 at Michler's Florist

It's not uncommon for us to hear that plants make people happy but one of our favorite local flower growers, Greenhouse 17, takes the idea to much greater heights. Greenhouse 17 is a safe, peaceful, and welcoming organization aimed at helping survivors of domestic abuse. A large part of the healing and restorative process takes place on a 40 acre plot of land brimming with things green and growing of both edible and cut-flower varieties.

We, here at Michler's, get regular deliveries of flowers from Greenhouse 17, which we incorporate into most all our seasonal arrangements. Over the summer, we are particularly enamored with the vibrant and luscious sunflower varieties that they bring through our door. You can see these florals in arrangements like the Bloomfield, Sierra, and Snazzy Sunflowers.

A great way to learn more about Greenhouse 17 and visit their amazing flower farm is to attend one of their floral U-Pick days.
