Tobie Whitman, founder and owner of Little Acre Flowers in Washington, D.C.

Tobie Whitman, founder and owner of Little Acre Flowers in Washington, D.C. is as passionate about her environmentally and socially conscious floral designs as she is about women’s rights.

So it came as no surprise when she looked to support women’s organizations for International Women’s Day on March 8th, that she turned to the League.

“I used to work in international women's empowerment before I started Little Acre Flowers, so your work is near and dear to my heart!” said Whitman of the League.

On Wednesday March 8, Little Acre Flowers will donate 15% of all sales to the League of Women Voters and other women’s organizations.

Committed to locally sourced flowers, Tobie and her colleagues offer a single arrangement of flowers each day based on what is seasonal and fresh.

“Our flowers come from nearby farms in the mid-Atlantic region,” said Whitman. “We always try to order all flowers from farms as nearby as is possible.”

If you’re looking to brighten someone’s day in the Washington, D.C. area on March 8th, consider Little Acre Flowers for a special arrangement to celebrate International Women’s Day.
