A Plantastic Event

A Plantastic Event

What better way to decorate your HOEM than with beautiful greenery! On Friday May 10th, the HOEM living room was turned into a botanical garden filled with a variety of succulents,
snake plants, anthuriums and much more.


The event was in partnership with and @succuterra who both provided more than enough options for HOEM students to tap into their green thumbs. About 40 students came out to the event, purchasing a variety of different plants for their rooms. The plants ranged from big to small and a variety of pots were also for sale. Olga De Lanerolle, the owner of stated that she partnered with HOEM because she supports the mission of providing students with plants to brighten up their spaces.


Why?? While plants are great for the aesthetic, they also provide many benefits such as reducing stress, creating a feeling of well-being and helping to improve the overall air quality – perfect for a student lifestyle! HOEMies … send us photos of plants in your HOEM on Instagram @hoemonjarvis for a chance to be featured and stay tuned for more future events!
