Sustainability Club Plants Over 600 Seeds During Two-day Gardening Initiative

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Spring blooms blossomed across campus with the turn of the season. Pink petals blanketed the trees waking from dormancy as tulips of reds and oranges sprung from the ground. The campus became a sea of green as the Brooklyn College Sustainability Club had its two-day gardening initiative Tuesday, Apr. 18, and Thursday, Apr. 20. 

Campus Sustainability teamed up with the Student Activities, Involvement, and Leadership Center, Undergraduate Student Council, LGTBQ+ Center, and the Greek Council to plant over 650 native seedlings. Across the West Quad, varieties of lovegrasses, bushes, and strawberry plants were sowed. 

“I learned about native perennials and their benefits of what they do for pollinators and how their resiliency is tied to them,” said Michael Gonzalez, a member of the Sustainability Club.
