Urban Cut Flower FarmGreen Visions
Green Visions’ vehicle for workforce development is the establishment, management, and operations of a commercial cut flower urban farm. Using formerly vacant city lots from Rochester’s Operation Green, Greentopia rents and then purchases lots that contained primarily single family homes that had been previously demolished. These stagnant lots are then turned into vibrant grow lots for a variety of cut flower species that are planted, grown and then harvested to include in custom-made bouquets. These bouquets are then sold through several local Wegmans stores, at the Rochester Public Market, and are made available for sale to custom events such as weddings, graduations, galas, and other special events.
