Christmas Ornament Sale

GRIPP-education-outreach-christmas-ornament-sale

Since 2013, GRIPP has held a “Living Ornament Sale” in order to raise funds for United Way. This year, approximately 370 ornaments were sold, leading to a $3,300 donation to United Way. In partnership with the department of Plant Agriculture (University of Guelph), GRIPP has generated over $10,000 in charitable donations since beginning this initiative.

In addition to raising funds, GRIPP hopes this uniquely interactive educational platform will give the university and local community a small glimpse into the fascinating world of plants, while also raising awareness towards the need for greater commitment to preserving our flora through environmental consciousness.
