Roses for Autism is a dynamic small business that helps individuals with Autism become employed in their local communities by growing and selling fragrant fresh cut roses. Based in Guilford, CT we continue a three-generation legacy of growing gorgeous roses and other flowers at the historic Pinchbeck farm.
Our roses are renowned for being fresh-cut and fragrant, and for unfolding in exquisite blooms to the delight of many new and returning customers. Since 2009, we have helped nearly 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 in order 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 returned to school to pursue post-secondary education.
The successes of our interns inspire us every day to continue our mission! Roses for Autism...So Much More Than Just Roses! We invite you to learn more about Our Impact and ways to Get Involved! Proceeds from our flower sales fund scholarships and programs for career training.
* At times of peak demand, we source fresh flowers from trusted business partners so that we may fulfill our mission.
