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.
