Environmental Committee combines with Bennett Gallery
April 28, 2023
Money might not grow on trees but the Environmental Committee has gotten pretty close. The committee just recently collaborated with the Bennett Gallery’s Plantorama show to host a plant sale where all proceeds were donated to Dream of Wild Health, a local organization dedicated to restoring health and wellbeing to Native American communities.
Grace Flikke ‘24 says that the Environmental Committee chose to send the plant sale proceeds to this organization because they wanted to support the “intersectionality of the environment with other issues.” Dream of Wild Health simultaneously supports the well being of indigenous communities and the environment.
The Environmental Committee and the gallery team created an exhibit focused on the appreciation of plants and nature. To do this, the Environmental Committee researched different interesting facts and benefits of plants, and posted them on the walls of the exhibit.
The plants on sale have been carefully propagated by Environmental Committee members since before winter break and most pots and plants have been donated for the event and carefully potted by committee members.
