First and foremost, we acknowledge that we are located on the traditional unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh people.

Late Bloomers Flower Farm is owned and operated by Elly Rakhmetouline, a potter and staunch advocate for buying local and being conscious of where your food and flowers come from, who grew them and how. 

Late Bloomers Flower Farm is in it's second year of existence but it's first year in the agricultural quarter of Gibsons, BC on the beautiful Sunshine Coast. After losing our land in Richmond in 2017, we're building a new place to grow our food and flowers at Brookbank farm, a place committed to Permaculture education and the home of the Gibsons Farm Collective CSA. 

Honour Stand Flowers is a pop up we do every year over Mother's Day weekend.

This project is a study in human trust and an effort to bring locally grown flora into the lives of more people. 

Bouquets are left unattended in coffee shops, breweries, and other local spots in the neighborhood with simple instructions, unintrusive to the businesses where they are; to buy flowers, leave $20 in the jar at the till.

$2 from every bouquet goes to Backpack Buddies, an organization that helps feed inner city school children on weekends, when food programs are not accessible to them.
