Picnic Day plants find new homes in the community

April 27, 2020

Thanks to greenhouse staff and students in the UC Davis College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CA&ES), 6,300 tiny tomato and strawberry plants originally planned for Picnic Day giveaways will soon find a good home.

“We’re reaching out to local food banks, community gardens and students here on campus to find places and ways to safely distribute these plants,” said Saarah Kuzay, graduate student researcher with the Horticulture and Agronomy Graduate Group.

CA&ES manages 162 greenhouses and related facilities that offer a total of 155,000 sq. ft. for research and teaching on the UC Davis campus.
