I've been the head grower for my graduate student organization for the last two years, which means I get to play around with hundreds of interesting plants each spring. Our organization has an ornamental grasses sale each year as a fundraiser. The money we raise is put towards thesis and dissertation completion scholarships, travel grants, invited seminar speakers, our annual graduate student research symposium, and other expenses.
We had a great potting party recently. In under an hour we potted up approximately 500 plants. In addition to the previous potting session, we now have almost 900 plants and 18 varieties.
