What Cheer Flower Farm
Anne Holland is a serial entrepreneur building multiple for-profit and non-profit organizations in Providence, RI. She’s also a cut-flower hobbyist who was inspired to cofound the What Cheer Flower Farm in 2017 after she witnessed the profound and positive impact receiving flowers has on the elderly.
Why They Made the Worthy 100: Holland built What Cheer Farm in the real world. She raised funds to buy the land in 2017 and has grown the farm to include a full-time staff that’s grown or rescued upwards of 85,000 flowers and given them away to the elderly, particularly those in hospice care suffering from dementia.
