Plants Make People Happy

Yesterday, Garden staff cleared out the greenhouse and donated hundreds of indoor plants to the UW Hospital Department of Anesthesiology and Operating Room staff.

The plants had been destined for a (now cancelled) spring plant sale and were suddenly in need of a new purpose.

Plants make people happy. And we have plants. Lots of plants.

Our team provided virtual guidance on choosing the best plant along with tips for success.

In the words of one of today’s new plant parents, “Thank you. This is the first time I’ve smiled all week.”
