Braiding and Bonding: A hands-on workshop to braid your very own Ficus benjamina plant
Greening Indoor McGill Initiative (GIMI) is hosting two, hands-on, noon-time workshops on Thursday, August 23rd.
Thanks to its special properties, the Ficus benjamina plant, an ideal indoor plant for offices, can be treated in a particular way that allows it to develop intricately braided patterns. In this hands-on workshop, you will be provided with your very own Ficus benjamina seedlings. Skillfully coached by Plant Science MA student Christie Lovat, you will learn how to treat and braid the seedlings in the workshop. Under Christie’s careful tutelage, you will also learn all that is needed to nurture and maintain your Ficus for your McGill office. For those who are new to indoor plant care, this workshop is a perfect opportunity to create a special bond with your very own indoor office plant.
There will be two back-to-back workshops: one from 11:30-12:30 and the second from 12:30-13:30, both on Thursday, August 23rd in Ferrier Room 456.
