Thanks for helping to promote and share Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD). To recap from today’s calls:

Plan a local event:

-          FoPD is May 18, 2019, but events can be planned for any time throughout May. Events can be anything from guest lectures and lab open days to community fun days and bootcamps on topics from agriculture to medicine, economic food systems and climate action For any events planned, we want to post them to the FoPD events calendar for maximum impact & reach. 

>>> Events can be submitted at using code subfopd19.


Help promote on social media:

- FoPD organizers have encouraged us to use #PlantDay and to mention @PlantDay18May and the FoPD Facebook page. 

>>> Here is a link to the PR toolbox:


Please share your ideas/brainstorm:

-          What are some sample social media messages that we can all cross-post and promote?

-          Outreach event ideas. Or, if an organization or individual is already planning an event near you, how can we help them promote the event?

-          Online/social outreach ideas- contests, catchy plant facts

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
