The Bloom Project
Heidi Berkman, founder of The Bloom Project, joins us on this episode of the Team Flower Podcast.
In this episode, Heidi is sharing the “why” behind The Bloom Project and her inspirational journey in founding the organization. You’ll be touched by the real-life stories of the people The Bloom Project has impacted. We are talking about the best flowers and the best vases to use for donation, and Heidi is sharing some secrets of the trade when it comes to being involved in the community.
The Bloom Project was founded in 2007, and is a volunteer-driven nonprofit that provides fresh floral bouquets to hospice and palliative care patients. The Bloom Project receives each of its flowers as donations provided by wholesale floral companies, growers and local grocery stores. The flowers are repurposed by volunteers into beautiful bouquets ready to deliver to local hospice and palliative care patients. Heidi and her team of volunteers are committed to sustainable business practices. Not only are they eco-friendly in their efforts to repurpose flowers from their partners, but also by composting floral waste.
