Plants are essential for our survival. They provide food, fiber, building material, fuel, and pharmaceuticals. Plants also produce intangible benefits for people, such as improving our health. Physically, they contribute to cleaner, healthier air for us to breathe, thus improving our well-being and comfort. They make our surroundings more pleasant, and they make us feel calmer. To celebrate the start of spring, GrandMarc at Tallahassee hosted a DIY Succulent planting event. GrandMarc at Tallahassee wanted residents and their guests to feel a sense of calm going into finals week for FSU as finals can be very stressful. Our residents really enjoyed this event and we were happy to host it and provide a nice break from the stress of finals.
