Frequently asked questions
What is The Neighborhood Plant Project?
My project started with the collection of donations of plants, clippings, pots, and soil, as well as greeting cards. I bring the plants and clippings home. I propagate the clippings and repot and care for the plants until they are full and pretty enough to deliver. I then distribute the plants and cards to vulnerable adults in my community, such as the elderly and disabled or people who may be homebound.
If you have a neighbor, friend, or loved one you believe would like a plant and a card; some love and joy, from The Neighborhood Plant Project, I ask that you message me through my website.

Where is The Nighborhood Plant Project going?
My vision is a brick and mortar space offering retail of plants and accessories at affordable prices along with workshops and education. To provide premium, quality plants and accessories with 20% of all sales going toward funding the project.
The workshops present an opportunity for like-minded people to come together to learn about plants, repot their own plant, and take home a plant and a card to either keep for themselves or give as a gift. These will be fun, innovative, and creative workshops in a vibrant environment! The business also offers retail of plants and planting supplies along with the workshops. A portion of the profits from retail and paid workshops goes to fund the continued delivery of plants and cards to the community with a focus on the vulnerable members and at-risk youth.
