Mary and her colleagues at the University of Greenwich Faculty of Business came up with the great idea of a plant sale while looking at creative ways for staff to participate in a sustainability initiative. Starting with houseplants that would work in an office, the idea soon grew with staff and colleagues growing fruit, vegetables and flowering garden plants as well in a wide variety of recycled containers – yoghurt pots, margarine tubs and tuna tins with picturesque labels were all put to great use!
Mary also had the inventive idea of bringing in a more mature special plant which was auctioned via 'sealed bids’ posted into a box which proved very popular. Volunteer cake bakers added to the occasion and no sooner had Mary announced the grand total of over £100 than people were asking on what date the next plant sale would take place. The plant sale is now in its third year and going from strength to strength!
