UNC Charlotte’s Botanical Gardens will hold its annual Spring Plant Sale Friday and Saturday, April 18 - 19, at the McMillan Greenhouse. Hours are 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM each day.
"We all look forward to the energy of the spring sale, seeing members of the gardening community, students, faculty and staff, all getting excited about what they can grow," said Paula Gross, assistant director of the Botanical Gardens. "We love being able to share the world of plants in this tangible way."
The sale, a major fundraising event that supports the operation of the Botanical Gardens, will feature a selection of native plants and exotic botanicals, including wildflowers, shrubs, perennials, tropical plants, succulents and carnivorous plants.
Celebrating student success was the focus of an awards ceremony held recently in the offices of the Honors College.
Malin Pereira, executive director of the Honors College, congratulated the recipients, whose "work went beyond their current obligations and connote excellence, high achievement and evidence of potential only beginning to be fulfilled." She also expressed her appreciation to honors faculty, scholarship committee members, program directors and mentors for their contributions in support of their students and the University.
