We help individuals with autism and other disabilities cultivate their careers and grow their tomorrows! Based in Guilford, Connecticut, we are a nonprofit florist and gift shop that provides vital transition-to-work programs serving the greater New Haven shoreline community.
Our roses, grown onsite in historic greenhouses, are renowned for being fragrant, fresh-cut, and for unfolding in exquisite blooms to the delight of many new and returning customers! We invite you to discover the beauty of our roses, and shop our featured gifts handcrafted by entrepreneurs with disabilities.
We sell our flowers at our Guilford store, online, and in numerous farmers markets statewide. We also ship nationwide!
In conjunction with our parent company, Ability Beyond, we have helped over one hundred individuals gain positive work experience in all areas of our business, from the greenhouse to e-commerce. In addition, we teach practical employability skills to ensure success in the workplace. Our interns have obtained jobs in industries such as retail, agriculture, technology, restaurant, hospitality, as well as the arts. Some have also enrolled in college courses and even started their own businesses!
