Families Gather to Pay it Forward with Small Acts of Kindness!

Flowers for Friends Combines Art, Spring Blossoms and Small Acts of Kindness

On Friday, April 5th, Hilltown Families and the Art Garden presented a Flowers for Friends Workshop, the second workshop in a 3-part free Friday family workshop series in Shelburne Falls. This past Friday families gathered to paint terracotta flower pots, planting them with violas to pass along to others in their community. Participating families were encouraged to give their flowers to an elder in their neighborhood, or their librarian, classroom teacher, receptionist at the hospital or animal shelter, or other community space of their choice.  — Paying it forward with a small act of kindness!

❤ Big thank you to Home Depot in Greenfield, Shelburne Farm & Garden, Hadley Garden Center and friends of The Art Garden for their donations and discounts for terracotta pots, soil and Violas!

Getting creative with family, friends and neighbors in a community art space like The Art Garden, builds relationships, affords opportunities to share and connect, and allows the space for creativity that our otherwise busy lives might not offer.

  1. The pots are beautiful – looks like a great project!! Just wanted to remind you that the Rotary Club of Franklin County purchased 1/2 of the pots with The Greenfield Home Depot. Thank you for my pot!!!
