Northwest Arkansas tulip farm generating funds for nonprofit



Little Rock, Arkansas – Despite the recent cold snap, a Bentonville tulip farm where visitors select their own flowers intends to open on time.

The first week of April is when the owners want to open the True Colors Tulips Farm in Bentonville.

As of March 20, the tulips hadn’t opened, allowing them to escape the weekend freeze.

While the farm is open for customer picking, neurodiverse personnel are employed.

It intends to donate money to PerspectAbility, a nonprofit organization that seeks to inform the public about the lack of possibilities for adults with differences, for the third consecutive year.

Kelli Jensen, the company’s creator, stated that PerspectAbility “wanted to be part of the solution” in addition to educating the public about this important gap.

The organization intends to launch a new facility.

“PerspectAbility is opening a transition academy, which looks like a 24/7 2-year post-high school educational setting to learn social skills, independent living, employment skills, and so on, and also to build an inclusive subdivision,” she said.
