Botany is a modern floral studio with a vintage touch, offering unique designs for weddings, events, and all occasions in Toronto and throughout the greater Toronto area. Botany creates fresh and organic designs inspired by nature, whimsical gardens, and nostalgia.
Located in Toronto’s Little Italy, Botany specializes in offering luscious, uncommon, and old-fashioned flower varieties. All of our flowers and plants are hand-picked with the utmost care.
Botany offers seasonal hands-on workshops. All of the workshops use a profusion of beautiful seasonal flowers and plants with a focus on using an unusual mix of materials and an organic style.
We are dedicated to providing a healthy and beautiful alternative to traditional floristry. Our flowers are locally grown whenever possible, and always fresh and seasonal. We strive to be sustainable in our practices – treading lightly anyway we can.
YamChops is a vegetarian butcher shop. Some might say that’s an oxymoron, but we believe plant-based proteins can be a staple of any kitchen or diet. Our recipes appeal to all types of eaters: flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans. In addition to being Canada’s first and only vegetarian butcher and fresh prepared food shop, we offer home delivery and catering, cold-pressed organic juices and juice cleanses.
With plant-based cuisine certifications from the Cordon Vert Cookery School, American Culinary Academy, Rouxbe Cooking School and almost 40 years’ veg cooking experience, Michael Abramson is an ad agency exec turned vegetarian butcher whose “little red sports car” just happened to be plant-based cuisine. You can find him dreaming up new recipes in YamChops’ kitchen, from Mongolian *Beef* Ribs to YamBurgers.
