Discover The Neighborhood Plant Project

My project started with the collection of donations of plants, clippings, pots, and soil, as well as greeting cards. I brought the plants and clippings home. I propagated the clippings and repotted and cared for the plants until they were full and pretty enough to deliver. I then distributed the plants and cards to vulnerable adults in my community, such as the elderly and disabled or people who may be home bound.  


If one had a neighbor, friend, or loved one they believed would like a plant and a card; some love and joy, from The Neighborhood Plant Project, I asked that they message me through my website. So most of my deliveries came from referrals and thus I developed a demographic through social media and community reputation. The project has received a tremendous amount of attention and gained so much traction, I will be establishing this business full time.


As this project flourished in this time of the pandemic, I decided to create a full-time business. My vision is a brick and mortor space for the retail of pants and planting supplies, workshops, education, and community involvement.


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. I will be collaborating with other small businesses in Tacoma regarding the workshops. 


I need funding to secure the lease for the brick-and-mortar site and renovations. I also need capital for inventory, equipment, and overhead expenses. Although this project started as a charitable outreach, it has quickly turned into an innovative, full-time, profitable business and has grown exponetionally in popularity.   


I believe this business will be extremely popular and profitable. I have worked in Social Services most of my life and myself went through the foster system, so I understand the positive impact a business of this type can have for our community.

There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky, And you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, What if you fly?”

The Story

In this unprecedented time, I have experienced loneliness and isolation like never before. It occurred to me there may be many more souls out there who are experiencing the same feelings. I feel it is my obligation and responsibility to bring the word of God, love, joy, and hope to people in our community that may be suffering. Everybody needs some thing to take care of and not everyone can take care of a pet, but surely everyone could take care of a plant. God is leading me and inspiring me to reach out to the community in a “pay it forward“ project. The purpose of this project is to spread joy. I am excited to see how this grows.
