PeoplesBank to Celebrate Earth Day by Giving Away Garden Plants and Seeds

HOLYOKE, MA (April 17, 2017) – The arrival of spring means that PeoplesBank shifts from “the wearing of the green” and Holyoke St. Patrick’s Day Road Race sponsorship to “the giving of the green” at the bank’s annual Earth Day Plants and Garden Seeds giveaway. On April 21, PeoplesBank will give away tomato plants and garden seed packets from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the following locations:

  • 300 King St., Northampton, a LEED® Gold-certified office
  • 1051 St. James Ave., Springfield, a LEED® Silver-certified office
  • 1240 Sumner Ave., Springfield
  • 547 Memorial Ave., West Springfield, a LEED® Gold-certified office

The events are open to the public. Seed and plant quantities are limited and will be distributed only while supplies last, and only at the designated PeoplesBank offices.
