Many Graces is a specialty cut-flower farm and floral design studio located on unceded Pocumtuc land in the beautiful Connecticut River Valley of Western Massachusetts. Many Graces is owned and operated by Rebecca Maillet, a queer, working class, first generation college graduate, published-poet-turned farmer. Growing on 5.5 acres of certified-organic land, Many Graces’ mission is to provide beautiful, sustainably-grown flowers to their local customers, CSA members, and special events clientele. The ethical stewardship of the land, honoring the labor of their workers, and believing in the healing, joy-inducing power of flowers drives the company mission — an ethical alternative to the practices of the global cut-flower industry. We plan to use the money to invest in a new delivery vehicle to meet increased demand for locally grown flowers. While the vast majority of our large scale events have been postponed or cancelled this year due to COVID-19, we are seeing an incredible response to our direct-from-field offerings and simply need a safe, long-term solution to get our flowers into the hands of our customers!
