WF&FSA (Wholesale Florist & Florist Suppliers association.) launched The Flower Movement Awareness Week(August 8-14) in 2021 to promote community activism, using flowers to change mindsets and uplift feelings.
The movement highlights the outreach efforts of WF&FSA members, such as bringing floral design workshops to community centers; donating flowers and arrangements to schools, nursing homes, hospitals, and hospices; and working with local groups to build neighborhood gardens.
“Flower Movement Awareness Week is a concentrated effort where not only those that work within the floral industry can come together, but anyone who understands the positive impact flowers make can help bring awareness to their healing properties,” said WF&FSA Executive Vice President Molly Alton Mullins. “Use this week as a way to support the movement by donating your time, knowledge, or resources in a way that showcases the amazing benefit of flowers.”
