Smile and Plant More Flowers

Today marks one year since we celebrated the incredible life and legacy of our founder and friend, Bill Smith.

Today and every day, in honor of Bill, may we all take a moment to notice the flowers, pick up litter and smile at a stranger. Click below to watch the video of his celebration of life.
