We help individuals with autism and other disabilities grow their careers and cultivate their tomorrows!
Based in Guilford, Connecticut, we are a nonprofit garden store that grows and sells fragrant fresh cut roses, and other unique gifts while also providing career training and mentorship to young adults with autism and other disabilities.
Winner of CT Magazine's Best of in 2016 and 2017!
Our roses are renowned for being fresh cut, fragrant, and for unfolding in exquisite blooms to the delight of many new and returning customers. We sell our flowers at our Guilford based farm store, online, and in numerous farmers markets throughout Connecticut. Proceeds from flowers sales support our programs for career training and our community sensory garden.
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. Many have also enrolled in college courses and even started their own businesses!
The successes of our interns inspire us every day to continue our mission! We truly are roses...and so much more!
* At times of peak demand, we source fresh flowers from trusted business partners so that we may fulfill our mission.
