Earth Day Plant Giveaway for Staff and Faculty

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,, in the Communications Office.

Plants will be given away on a first come, first served basis. One per employee please.
