Have you heard about GivingColor? It’s the heart of our farm. We like to say we’re a little flower farm with a big heart.
Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve understood the value of a good meal. When I was in elementary school, I worked in the lunchroom washing dishes in exchange for my lunch ticket. Kind of embarrassing as a kid, but my family was on a tight budget in those early years. Fortunately for me, I always had a good breakfast at home and there was always a warm dinner on the table at night. Other children in our communities, and around the world aren’t so lucky. Even today, 1 in 6 children in the United States face hunger, according to www.nokidhungry.org. And that’s just the United States, the situation is more staggering in developing countries around the world. This breaks my heart.
At our farm, we decided to try and do something about it. That’s why we launched the GivingColor initiative.
So what is GivingColor? 1 for 6. Through our collaboration with Meals from the Heartland, we donate a meal that feeds six people for every flower purchase from our farm. Every daylily. Every market bouquet. Every flower bunch. It all counts toward our GivingColor initiative. To learn more about Meals from the Heartland, visit www.mealsfromtheheartland.org.

Watch for opportunities this year to help package meals with the Bochner Farms team. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be the first to hear about upcoming events.
We believe that flowers feed the soul, so why shouldn’t they feed the world too? I hope you’ll join us.
