Accessibility

We've all been conditioned to be polite about money - i.e., we've been taught to not talk about it. At Garden and Villa, we believe that through transparency and accountability we can contribute to a more accessible, equitable, (and ultimately more verdant) floral industry. 

 

Life's biggest moments are often marked with an abundance of fresh flowers. I strive to make flowers attainable to those who may not otherwise be able to purchase them at full price. I do this by maintaining a pay-what-you-can option.

Here's how it works: a price tier suggested by the potential customer. From there, we have a free consultation in person or on the phone. We'll go over what's possible and what might be challenging.

Before proceeding with a request to pay a reduced rate for floral services, I ask you to consider the following for yourself.

🌸 How does your socio-economic history (job status, generational wealth, debt) affect your ability to access and pay for fresh flowers and floral design services?
🌸 How does your race, ethnicity, disability, orientation, or gender impact your ability to access and pay for fresh flowers and floral design services?
🌸 What does life honestly look like for you right now?

      All pay-what-you-can sales are final, rescheduling is negotiable. The pay-what-you-can program is subject to the same seasonal and scheduling availability as  full-price products.
