Plant sale makes some green
It was another successful Heirloom Plant and Vegetable Sale for Natural and Applied Sciences. With about 5,000 plants sold, the annual sale that draws from Northeast Wisconsin and beyond made more than $9,000 to support student research, internships, travel grants for students, and other special opportunities for the program. Excess plants were donated to the Seymour Park Neighborhood Garden for its youth program, which supplies several neighborhood food pantries with produce. Associate Prof. Steve Meyer earned nearly $1,000 for the Katie Hemauer Scholarship Fund. During the 2017-2018 school year the funds supported 10 Heirloom Research and Travel Grants.
