ANN ARBOR – University of Michigan Farm Stand will be hosting a pop-up herb sale on central campus on April 22 to mark Earth Day.

From noon to 3 p.m., the Farm Stand will set up outside the University of Michigan Museum of Art and will be selling basil, parsley, thyme and more while supplies last.

U-M students who shop the sale will receive a 30% discount. Only credit cards will be accepted at the sale.

The herbs were grown at the Campus Farm by students for students, and sales from the pop-up will go toward supporting mini-grants for the school’s food justice program.
