LOOK WHAT KINDNESS CAN PRODUCE!! Our three month partnership with the amazing organization Random Acts concluded at The University Center at The University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Over the summer, our Plantables workers produced hundreds of BEE-ing Kind seed bombs for the Random Acts fundraiser. Dozens of packages left our Hudson, Wisconsin warehouse and were sent all across the nation. A portion of the profits from each purchase was donated to Random Acts. Accepting the donation from Plantables owner Karen (right) is Random Acts Development Officer (and kindness expert) Jennifer Willis-Rivera at The Random Acts 5th Anniversary Celebration, where participants made Bee Bombs and played Bee Bingo.
WHAT A BEE-UTIFUL DAY AT THE FAIR!! All of us at Plantables had a fantastic time at The Spirit of the St. Croix Art Fair in Hudson. Thanks to everyone who stopped by today! We were greeted by so many remarkable friends that we've made over the past two years, and we also had the chance to meet lots of wonderful new friends! We will be there tomorrow from 10-4. Look for our new bright yellow tent and our giant smiles!! : )
John McGivern and his wonderful crew stopped by the Plantables warehouse today to shoot a segment for his show, "Around The Corner With John McGivern". His Milwaukee Public Television show highlights various towns in Wisconsin and we were fortunate to be one of sites chosen to represent Hudson. Our segment will air in January! We'll keep you posted for exact times and channels. A special THANK YOU to Mary Weller, Hudson WI Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau, for setting this up!
We're BEE-yond ecstatic and extremely fortunate to announce that we've added Tim to our amazing Plantables worker crew. He was busy on his first day helping us make seed embedded paper for our Sprout Worthy planter boxes. He's a terrific worker, he has a great sense of humor, and he has a very kind heart to boot! Today in the middle of his shift, (without any prompt) he said, "I really like it here!" Welcome aboard Tim, we LOVE having you you at Plantables!! (Pictured with Tim is intern Rachel).
WE DID IT!! Today, the Plantables Crew finished up with our largest order ever, of 4,550 (that's right FOUR THOUSAND, FIVE HUNDRED and FIFTY) seed embedded custom cards for the Deluxe Check Company. All our workers were thrilled that they accomplished this feat. A special shout to Christiansen Creative in Hudson for partnering with us on this order!
Follow our progress as we get this venture up and running.
