Last week, Kevin Tarner (one of our greenhouse personnel) and Chera Watts (our undergrad advisor) took a group of incoming transfer and other interested students on a tour of our greenhouses. About 20 students showed up for the tour and they were each given goodie bags and free plants. Kevin walked them through the permanent collections and then introduced the students to some of the research taking place in other greenhouses. What a fun tour!
