Liz Carlson and Lynn Olmsted had an idea. What happens to the flowers once they are taken off the shelf, or done being shown for weddings? Why can't they have a longer life? The program relies on the kindness of one group of people to bring smiles and new life to flowers for another group of people. The business is called REBLOOM. Liz and Lynn pick up flowers donated from flower shops, weddings, funerals, or other events and repurpose them for nursing homes and hospices

Some of the flowers they get from weddings or funerals and they are quite large. They split them up into smaller vases and bring them to people to brighten up their room and their life, to let them know they are loved.

They are currently taking in flowers from some of the grocery stores, Sam's club, and co-op. Both the ladies say how rewarding it is to see the look on people's faces when they get a bouquet of flowers delivered to them.

If you would like to get in touch with them, visit their facebook page.
