About Us

What Cheer Flower Farm, an award-winning 501c3 nonprofit, was founded in 2017 to bring joy, solace and healing by giving away free floral bouquets to food banks, hospitals, recovery centers and to at-risk youth and seniors. Located on a former manufacturing site in Providence, we are in the process of remediating derelict structures and transforming asphalt into productive green space.

In addition to growing, rescuing and giving away more than 50,000 flowers per year, the Farm’s programs allow volunteers, urban dwellers and artists to experience farming and floristry up close. We have also begun to trial green job training programs. 

The Farm has proven that flowers can make a measurable difference in a wide variety of stressful situations, ranging from dementia to the aftermath of violence. Our flower distribution partners include nonprofits statewide ranging from Newport Hospital to Meals on Wheels of RI.
