Faculty and staff are invited to the Bicentennial Hall Greenhouse (6th floor) on Earth Day, Friday, April 22, any time between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to pick out a free plant.
There will be spider plants, strawberry begonias, ivy, purple hearts, cape primrose and more — all raised in the greenhouse especially for this Earth Day event.
If you don’t have a green thumb, don’t worry: the greenhouse curator, Patti Padua, will be on hand to offer advice on how best to care for your new plant.
And if you know any students who would like a plant, tell them to be patient: there will be a “Take Me to Your (Dorm) Room” plant giveaway for students in September.
The project is made possible through a grant from the Environmental Council. If you have any questions, contact Robert Keren, firstname.lastname@example.org, in the Communications Office.
Plants will be given away on a first come, first served basis. One per employee please.
