Living in the country and being surrounded by farms, I have always had a deep respect for farmers. Their work hours are when the sun rises to when the sun goes down, and their best friend and biggest enemy is Mother Nature herself. Every spring, my team and I work tirelessly to plant the farm and take care of the thousands of baby plants that we are counting on that season. There are no guarantees in farming and it is bloody hard work. But every week when we get to share our blooms with the people of Rochester at the Brighton Market, to our florists around town and to our wedding clients, I am reminded why we work so hard and the joy that hard work brings. // @flowerwellny 2/8 #explorerochester

It is no lie that this time of year, every moment spent on my farm is filled intoxicating beauty. I became a flower farmer to firstly to feed my soul, and secondly because I thought the people of Rochester and Western NY would appreciate a new take on flowers that are grown sustainably and without the use of chemicals. My farm is currently 1⁄2 acre of all cut flowers, and I am growing it every year. Flowerwell came from a notion that cut flowers can be so much more than your traditional red roses. My goal is to have my flowers stop you in your tracks because they are just that beautiful. So far, I think we are succeeding.

Introducing our week 142 (Yr. 3 Wk. 38) contributor: @flowerwellny

Hey fellow Rochester friends! My name is Jenny Rae and I am the owner of @flowerwellny, a Specialty Cut Flower Farm & Design Studio. I live in the west side of Rochester (Brockport area) where the corn grows high and life is just a touch quieter. Growing up in the country, I have always been surrounded by more trees than cars and a deep appreciation for nature. This week on #ExploreRochester I want walk you through the life of a flower farmer florist and all the beauty that surrounds me on the daily! Photo by @lindsaystephanyphoto

As you read this, @upstatesocial is taking place at one of the most instagrammable/beautiful spots in Rochester, @eastmanmuseum. I was lucky enough to convince @leahstacy to co-found this conference with me 3 years ago and I'm so excited that this year we have 350+ attendees from Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, and beyond joining us to talk about one of my favorite topics, social media! By the way... A huge thank you to @kmeyersemery for sharing her 🙌 social media skills with us, @jdusett for his 💯 design work, @dangribbin for his website expertise, and the amazing team at @eastmanmuseum for helping us make this happen! If you'd like to follow along today and see what the conference is all about, keep an eye on the hashtag #UpstateSocial17.

Thank you SO much to @explorerochester for inviting me to takeover their feed this week! I hope you get the chance to go out and #explorerochester this weekend 🤓 // @dtotheraymo 5/5 #explorerochester

Rochester Brainery is my home away from home. When you own a business it's your life, so you have to love it and I can safely say after 4.5 years I'm still in love. I have met so many amazing people through @rocbrainery - whether they've come in to teach a class, take a class, sell their items at Brainery Bazaar or to rent our space - and I have stories of people becoming good friends because of Rochester Brainery too which makes me so incredibly happy. I'll keep doing what I can to remain a positive resource for the community as long as Rochester wants us 🤓 // @dtotheraymo 4/5 #explorerochester

Oh, the Wedge. I've lived in the South Wedge for 3 years now (and in 2008 for a year!) and it just keeps getting better. I love a neighborhood where on a lazy day I can just walk to everything I want to get to and the South Wedge checks most of those boxes. Groceries. Ice cream. Bikes. Wine. Checking out old fun things at Historic Houseparts. The ability to walk to a gorgeous park. I love it! New stuff is popping up all the time (shoutout to @justbrowsingroc!) and I can't wait to see what else pops up in the neighborhood! // @dtotheraymo 3/5 #explorerochester

Just about as soon as I had friends that could drive, I started going to Javas a lot, a lot. Then, I discovered lots of other great businesses along East Ave including the best movie theatre ever. I always maintain two things about The Little. The first is it has the best popcorn. My husband and I have been known to get popcorn to go on occasion just because it's that's good, and even had engagement photos taken inside/outside The Little that also feature popcorn 🍿. Second is that you can pretty much see any movie from The Little without watching the preview first and just know it's going to be good. // @dtotheraymo 2/5 #explorerochester

This bridge is over on Atlantic Ave. It was a road we took quite a lot when I was growing up to visit my grandma, who lived across from East High School. When I was little my sister and I thought this tunnel was a little roller coaster- I loved it!
I have so many great memories of Rochester as a kid. Rehearsing at The German House for a production of Les Miserables I was in. Thinking I was pretty cool as a high schooler walking across East Ave. in between rehearsal at RAPA to get dinner at Burger King (you know, all grown up). Realizing that there are other performing space in The Auditorium Theatre than just the main stage itself (not really hidden, but so many people I've talked to don't know!). Can you tell I was a theatre kid? Anyway, I couldn't wait to move to Rochester and be closer to all things singing and dancing. As soon as I could I did, when I was in college. // @dtotheraymo 1/5 #explorerochester

Introducing our week 141 (Yr. 3 Wk. 37) contributor: @dtotheraymo

Hello, Rochester! My name is Danielle Raymo 🤓

I grew up in Greece, NY and moved away to New York City at the end of 2010. I came home about once a month for work, weddings, holidays, etc. and each time I felt like not being in Rochester I was truly missing out. I wanted to be a part of all of the exciting new things popping up and experience everything this city has to offer. So, I moved back in 2013 and co-founded a business called @rocbrainery.
Ever since I moved back I've been loving Rochester more and more. I'm excited to #ExploreRochester with you this week and share with you why I think this city is 💯! ⠀

Much has already been said about the family friendliness of Rochester and its suburbs. As a parent, I am grateful for all that Rochester has to offer. From the world famous @museumofplayroc and @rocrmsc to the numerous parks and outdoor recreation areas barely a five minute drive or ride from wherever you live. For us, one of those gems is the Brickyard Trail in Brighton pictured here. .
Our children are growing up in a world that is changing faster every day than it ever has. We are bombarded with stimuli in ever increasing intensity. Take every opportunity to slow down, look around and enjoy the ride! // @mithunmukherjee 6/6 #explorerochester

Pune, my hometown in India, boasts the highest density of motorized two wheeled commuters in Asia. Motorcycles, scooters, mopeds etc. or “two-wheelers” as they’re also called have always been the primary means of transport for the lower and middle class in these regions. Naturally, I rode scooters and motorcycles growing up. .
Rediscovering two wheels in Rochester has helped me tap into a nascent but growing moto community as diverse as any. From Hondas and Ducatis to Vespas and Harleys, the budding, monthly @rocmotosocial meetup is connecting “two-wheeler” moto enthusiasts, male and female, novice and expert alike, across the city. It is also shining a light on the local custom motorcycle build scene featuring the likes of @interstellarmotors and @lowbornbrand. .
Rider or not, even if you have a fleeting interest in “two-wheelers”, come hang at the next @rocmotosocial. // @mithunmukherjee 5/6 #explorerochester

I work at the University of Rochester Medical Center as a healthcare IT professional. A hospital is a busy place. Every morning, I observe the hordes of miracle workers - doctors, nurses, techs and support staff make their way from the parking lot to the corridors of the hospital going about their daily duties either reporting to their day shift or heading back home after a long night at the hospital. Whether it is helping a preemie fight for life in the NICU or a grandparent battle cancer and chemotherapy, these individuals and teams really do work miracles through medicine and state of the art care. Our community is exceptionally fortunate to be blessed with world class facilities and experts that can provide such high level of care. Hopefully most of us and our families will not need it but if we do, it is literally within our reach. // @mithunmukherjee 4/6 #explorerochester
