Buy a poinsettia, grow a Buckeye

Buy a poinsettia at one of CFAES’ two upcoming sales, and you’ll brighten both your home and some students’ lives as Buckeyes.

Columbus sale

The Columbus campus sale, Dec. 4–5, benefits the CFAES chapter of Pi Alpha Xi, the national honor society for horticulture students.

Wooster sale

The Wooster campus sale, Dec. 6–7, supports greenhouse and floriculture students at Ohio State ATI, CFAES’ two-year degree-granting unit. The students grow and display the poinsettias as part of their hands-on coursework.

“The students enjoy interacting with customers and hearing their positive responses,” said Terry Lanker, chair of Ohio State ATI’s Horticultural Technologies Division. “It’s a real confidence-builder.”
