On Thursday May 10th, residents joined RA Michaela for some fun planting seeds. Residents were able to plant different vegetable and flower seeds in used Keurig cups. The residents were able to decorate the Keurig cups with markers. After decorating the cups, residents were able to use their green thumb and plant. This was a great break for residents from studying and help cut down waste by using the used Keurig cups. What is your favorite plant? Post your answers in the Discussion Page.
