Our Greenhouse store

Greenhouse prep for cart sales

Floral arrangements are available for holidays, special occasions, corporate events and more. A unique “Flower of the Month” program is also available for pick-up. 

All items sold through the Niagara Floral Center and Greenhouse are nurtured and created exclusively by people with disabilities. More than 150 individuals each week receive training and horticulture therapy through the center. Working with plants promotes dexterity, enhances motor skills and develops socialization.

Businesses are invited to host cart-sales any time during the year and/or to participate in our pre-order programs for holidays. Individuals with disabilities assist with the sales, which provide socialization and integration with the community. Call Robert Bracikowski at 504-2617 x244 or greenhouse@oppunlimited.org to schedule.

"I enjoyed the first class that I took so much that I invited my friend Kathy to the next class. She registered for the whole year of classes right away. Kathy and I just love the classes. So far we have a beautiful window box and a patio planter. Both are loaded with plants. Bob, the instructor, told us how to preserve the patio pot so that we will have it for two summers! We are learning so much! Last time, we had an "identify the herb" contest and I won a dish garden that looks great in my kitchen. We're looking forward to the rest of the series. It's a fun night out for us."
