The 500 Roses Giveaway from Rocket Farms Flower Truck


Even though Valentine’s Day is over, we can’t help but share this story because we love hearing about how flowers make people happy!

On February 14th, 2013, Rocket Farms drove a truck around San Franscico to give away 500 roses to passers-by! The event, “Share the Love: A Valentine’s Day Giveaway,” was created celebrate the holiday and to bring happiness to people by sharing their love of flowers. Rocket Farms staff handed out flowers to both men and women. They also took photos and asked the recipients, “What is your favourite thing about flowers?”

As evidenced by the happy, smiling recipients in the photos, the event was a success! At some point, the Flower Truck got so busy, a line was formed around the street corner. People were surprised and overjoyed to receive a potted rose. Some comments overheard at the event included: “You made my day.” and “I feel so special.” Needless to say, they gave out all of their flowers by the end of the day.
