Green Fern Events Donates Organic Herbs for Dell Children's Medical Center Fundraiser

Yesterday, April 26, 2009, Green Fern Events proudly donated 80 herb plants for the Dell Children's Medical Center fundraiser: "Life + Medical Miracles + Hope". The event was held at Heller Hall on 8th and Congress and was sponsored by Andrew and Mary Ann Heller of Heller Records. Green Bistro Catering sponsored the gourmet dinner. 

Each organic herb was individually wrapped in 100% organic cotton cloth and tied with natural rafia. Not only do herbs make great centerpieces and/or give-aways for events, they are sustainable. Instead of discarding flower arrangements post event, guests can take the herbs home to plant in their gardens and use for culinary purposes.
