Reducing Suicide Through Community Connection
Michelle holds a conversation with local businesses, PlanterDay, an official sponsor of CSS, Saint Flora, and Plant Baybe on the connection between building community and preventing suicide through plants.
Facilitated by Michelle Macarai, LCSW, Clinical Program Training Coordinator
Planterday is a mission-driven plant shop dedicated to destigmatizing mental health and promoting mental health resources.
Planter Day is located on College Ave in Rockridge. It is more than just a plant store. The shop serves as a community hub for meetings where independent vendors, artists, and chefs can share their products with the community during weekend pop-ups. They also offer plant consultations in both residential and commercial spaces and local plant delivery.
Saint Flora is a full service floral and online gift shop based in San Francisco Bay Area. The company was created as an evolution of my Fine Art practice and love of all things flowers. They’ve been using plant life cycles as a soft metaphor for communicating complex perspectives.
They believe that like the flower, life is uncertain and should be used to honor what is best in each other. “Flora is the apex of a beautiful and unbroken circle.
Plant Baybe is a small, female owned and operated rare plant shop located in Alameda, California.
We specialize in growing and importing rare aroids from Southeast Asia and South America and also carry common house plants, air plants, sea shells, pottery, moss poles, growing media including our own custom soil mix, fertilizers and specialty seeds.
