SP0065: Greening Indoor McGill Initiative

Status: COMPLETED February 2012 - April 2013

Greening Indoor McGill Initiative promotes the use of indoor plants to improve air quality and promote a healthy aesthetic through the greening of indoor environments for McGill faculty, staff, and students. Drawing on the expertise of Department of Plant Science faculty and students, this pilot project is:

1) propagating and distributing suitable indoor office plants
2) holding workshops to disseminate information on plant care
3) developing a resource website
4) conducting follow-up surveys to provide additional information on plant care and maintenance

The impacts of these activities will be realized in both improvements to indoor environments and the creation of a McGill network to maintain and expand such improvements.
