Who is Smile Farms?
Smile Farms Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating jobs for adults with developmental disabilities in greenhouses, urban gardens, and farms in the communities where they live. Smile Farms, was formed in September 2015, by the McCann family of 1-800-flowers.com, in response to the unacceptable 80% unemployment rate among this population.
Today, Smile Farms boasts two farm locations, in Moriches, NY and Turlock, CA training and employing more than 100 people with developmental disabilities between two farm locations.
This year, we will open an additional three – four farms in the tri-state area, more than doubling our footprint and employing at least another 40 people with developmental disabilities. By joining us at Hicks Nurseries 27th Annual Spring Flower & Garden Show, you will directly help foster a world where people with differing abilities are always fully included.
Many hearts and hands are needed to help build a brighter future for all–we hope you to see you on March 9th!
