Plant Sale for Africa

For the past 3 years, we have been a doing plant sale to raise money for malaria nets in Africa.  We have raised over $1700 which is about 170 bed nets for families!  We start buy collecting tin cans throughout the year.  Then in April, we plant seeds: basil, oregano, cilantro, zinnias, sunflowers etc.  The students put rocks, dirt and seeds in the cans and then nurture them until they grow into plants (hopefully). 

We sell them over two days for $2-5 per can.  It has been a great project, and one that myself and my ex-colleague are proud to have initiated.  I will be posting a packet soon with more details.
