Coriander, chive, rosemary, basil, strawberry, corn salad, rocket, thyme, lemon balm, chili peppers, seeds of sunflower, dill, roses, sunflowers, and hibiscus were available for students to plant.

Kicking off a week of celebration and activism in honor of Earth Day, CEU Provost and Pro-Rector Liviu Matei joined U.S. Ambassador Colleen Bell and 5th district Mayor Peter Szentgyorgyvolgyi to plant a "Tree of Friendship" in Szabadsag ter (Freedom Square). After the white magnolia tree was planted, CEU student volunteers helped prepare the park for spring by planting dozens of small bushes and plants.
