MUSC’s Arbor Day celebration on Dec. 3 at the Horseshoe featured a nature-themed vendor fair with local businesses, MUSC Go Green and the Urban Farm, Charleston County Parks and Healing Farms. The MUSC Arboretum staff sold 140 poinsettias that were grown by one of MUSC’s bedding plan nursery vendors. Money from the poinsettia sales will be used to support the Arboretum.
