Emeralds Get to Work for National Disability Employment Awareness Month
One of our favorite things is seeing adults of varying abilities work side by side towards growing the community. 1800-Flowers.com, Inc. has selected a few of its employees from around the country to participate in a leadership development group called the Emerald Program. These Emeralds spent the day at Smile Farms at IGHL to get the full scope of what’s important to the 1800-Flowers.com family. As the Greenhouse Workers went throughout their normal routine, they were shadowed by the Emeralds. They learned how the Farm operates and were a tremendous help to the employees! After the shift ended, the Emeralds gathered for a well-deserved lunch with the Smile Farms at IGHL staff. The rest of the day was filled with an extremely competitive selfie scavenger hunt and a formal tour around the 5 acre Farm.
A huge thank you to the Staff and Greenhouse Workers from Smile Farms at IGHL for hosting the 1800-Flowers.com, Inc. Emeralds!
