Growing Plants for Growing Minds

Por La Mar Nursery’s Growing Plants for Growing Minds Program was created with the goal to give back to our local community, educate our youth on the importance of plants in their lives, and the impact plants can have on our planet.

On Monday 10/25/21, we kicked off the program with our first trip to Notre Dame School in downtown Santa Barbara. We taught seed planting to lower grades and plant propagation to upper grades, gave out some fun merchandise & plants, and spread excitement about the benefits of houseplants to both teachers and students. The students and faculty both were very thankful for the opportunity, and we’re excited to continue to engage local schools and organizations.

We’ve partnered with over 15 local schools and organizations, and our second event was at the local Girls, Inc. chapter on November 15th, 16th, and 17th.

Stay tuned for more announcements and opportunities with this program.
