Thank you from our team at Bunny’s Flowers in NYC and Doylestown, PA for an amazing, healthy, and safe year. Despite the year’s challenges, we are proud to announce that we had a successful FIRST year as an educational institution! Bunny’s Flowers is a 501c3 non-profit organization and you will receive a letter in your email to verify your tax deductible donation.
We have had a positive community impact and we will be continuing our educational program with Delaware Valley Universities online educational programming in the spring. We are looking forward to moving into our second year to continue a legacy of community development work that goes back over a century in the ancestors of its founders and in honor of our wonderful community in Bucks County, PA and New York, NY.
This program was inspired by the specific wish of Ricelle”Bunny” Grossinger to enhance the lives of children and families through environmental education in the garden.
Bunny’s Flowers has a strong focus on mental health support and education, and we use flower gardening as a way to reach our clients. We work with all aspects of the community, children, and families to have a valuable experience with Bunny’s Flowers that they will remember for a lifetime. In 2020, we sent out flowers to people struggling with mental health issues with a personalized card that was hand written by one of our students, to teach the importance of giving the gift of flowers and a sweet message to brighten someone’s day. 🌸
One of our most effective launch programs, The Bunny’s Flowers “Create Your Own Home Garden” Program, was well received by the community. Children and their parents were able to start their own gardens with the education and plants they received from our program. They also received tools and continued support from our organization to help maintain a sense of mental well-being and success. We also used our state of the art ventilation system that is similar to the engineering specifications of scientific laboratory equipment to enhance our safe social distancing. We followed the same protocol that was implemented at doctors offices as far as no contact thermometers, mask wearing, and sanitization practices.
We are also proud to say we were able to provide support and monetary donations not only to our clients but also to other local non-profits such as Rachel’s Helping hands, Miracle Corners of the World, UNWRA USA National Committee, The Barn Nature Center Foundation , Crossfit Summa, Between Friends Outreach and a handful of other local organizations and businesses.
Bunny’s Flowers successfully created partnerships in our first year. Each one had an impact, and all are appreciated. Several of these partners even received Community Development Initiative Grants to support other educators by creating jobs in our community.

Co-founders Brandon and Gregory met in their early years at a nursing home in the late 90s working in the kitchen together. Their friendship has stood the test of time seamlessly and both will tell you all about it…
“I’ve known, and worked with, Brandon for a long time. He has always exceeded my expectations. Most importantly, he’s very trustworthy. As a business owner, I need someone who gets the job done. Whenever I work with Brandon, I know that the task will get done well and that I don’t have to worry about it. That’s why I continue to work with him.”
“Brandon is an excellent teacher – so easy going yet at the same time you can tell he really is wants to give you a valuable lesson. I never feel like a bother to ask him for help or to do a demonstration for me. He’s a master of his craft and is totally down to earth – that’s why I keep coming back!”
“Brandon and I used to sell products together at different events and also share a lot of business and life goals over the years. After over 15 years of knowing someone like B you not only can’t help but love his level of professional courtesy, but he is a kind and caring friend that I can talk to about anything “
“ I would like to thank and recognize Brandon from Bunny’s flowers. My daughter is working with him and he is an amazing mentor. They are working on gardening, planting, watering, propagating and all of the great learning that goes with it. My daughter is 14 and is gaining independence, a sense of ownership for the gardening project and following the quiet leadership from Brandon. He leads with a laid back approach and works with my daughter to foster empowerment and independence. Brandon is an amazing leader without being bossy and taking the ideas and working together. He gives ideas and works with my daughter for planning and organization. This has been an amazing experience all around and such a relief and bright spot amid all of the turmoil with COVID. She loves having an outdoor job and she has a sense of pride with the garden project. It has given her time with various family members to show off her project and have something unique and personal for herself. My daughter is the youngest and she finally has something she is proud of and to call her own. This has been the best thing for us and has been a real bright spot for our family. Thank you to Brandon and Bunny for being an inspiration. We are so grateful for the opportunity”
“ Hi, I am Megan and I am a volunteer for Bunny’s Flowers. During my experience working for Bunny’s Flowers I have weeded and watered the vegetable garden, planted pumpkins, and tomatoes, and other plants that were donated. It is a very exciting, educational and rewarding experience for me. During each shift, I begin my work by using the empty pots to propagate more plants. Each time I make about 10 pots from the flowers at the shop. I see if the garden needs to be watered, because it has been so hot lately and the garden is in such desperate need of water. Other times it rains too much, and the garden does not need to be watered or may need just some light watering. I head back up to the shop and I end my shift by cleaning up outside to make sure things are tidied up. I sweep or power wash outside because there can get a build up of tiny pebbles, and I wash them out to make it look clean. I enjoy growing and becoming a responsible person for Brandon to be able to count on and rely on. I can’t wait to see the progression of this wonderful program and the projects that we have discussed. I am so lucky to be involved with Bunny’s Flowers, there is so much that is in store for this wonderful program that Brandon has shared with me. It is an honor to represent Bunny’s Flowers.” -Megan Kuehl
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brandon for inviting me to work with him on Bunny’s Flowers. Like him, I developed my passion for gardening from working with my own grandmother. The memories I shared with her are held close to my heart, and working with a group that is based on the same principles makes me feel like I’m keeping these memories alive. Brandon and I first worked together making a glass sculpting video for my students. When I reached out to him he was eager to help me and his passion for education became clear. Whether you’re working with him as a student or a colleague, his laidback attitude and knowledgeable manner make him a pleasure to work with. When he explained to me his mission of bringing together his love of `education with his love of the environment, I immediately became interested.Bunny’s Flowers is an amazing example of how students can develop not only an appreciation for the Earth, but also a deeper appreciation for themselves.Bunny’s Flowers is an amazing example of how students can develop not only an appreciation for the Earth, but also a deeper appreciation for themselves.Gardening is a gratifying skill that fosters a confidence students will take with them to adulthood. As an educator and a new mom, I hope to use Bunny’s Flowers to instill these values in my own son, as we set out to make our own gardening memories together.” – Stephanie Worthington
