The brick unveiling date was also the annual Mother's Day Plant sale at the greenhouse.

Thanks to all our supporters.  Barnard really appreciate it.  It is especially touching to see the names of graduated students and families, teachers and friends.  It is heartwarming to know that happy memories are made here, while recognizing the loss of Amy O'Doherty, we celebrate her spirit every day.

Thank you to retired US Airways Flight Attendant for Large Donation

Recently the Barnard PTA received very generous donation from a retired US AirWays Flight Attendant Marianne Moore to be used for new engraved bricks and outdoor furniture at Amy's Greenhouse.  While attending an out of state wedding, Millie Radonjic graciously accepted the unexpected donation from the bride Marianne Moore-Palumbo. The flight attendants and pilots continue to be affected on a daily basis by the 9-11 tragedy and said that they see Amy's Greenhouse as a positive way to channel their grief.

Mother's Day Plant Sale

 The Amy’s Greenhouse Committee and Barnard PTA sponsor an annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale to generate revenue for year round gardening projects.  Hanging plants are offered for pre-sale in the weeks before the plant sale.  


           Amy's Greenhouse looks so beautiful ...


               PTA members purchased plants wholesale at the Bronx Terminal Market and spent several weekends and evenings assembling herb baskets and other gift plantings.  Hanging baskets were sold on a pre-order basis, 65 baskets were purchased. 


               Special thanks to Lily's mom Lisa Eichler who used her skills and made lots of beautiful decorated pots for the Amy’s Greenhouse Mother's Day Plant Sale 


Marianne, in her sunflower dress, made shure that all the displayed arrangements are in their proper place!


Mini clear plastic pocketbooks were donated by designideas.net and were sold at the sale.  The company sells a variety of their products at the Bronx Botanical Garden gift shop.
