Alternative Break is a student-led program in the Civic and Community Engagement Office that prepares students to become active citizens. Students participate in trip experiences that engage them in direct service alongside community nonprofit organizations, education surrounding social justice and social issues, and critical reflection.
Please help us to provide Buffalo State students with a life-changing Alternative Break experience. Any questions regarding the fundraiser can be directed to the student leadership team. We thank you in advance for your support!

Continuous succession of beautiful 2" orange and yellow blooms provide a spectacular splash of color all summer. Perfect for borders or scattered throughout the garden. Classic marigold aroma.

Country Romance Hollyhocks
This is the old-fashioned perennial hollyhock that is so hard to find. Try it along a fence or plant with verbascum for a special look. A blend of rose, white, maroon, yellow or pink, large 3-5" single flowers are produced abundantly on stalks 5-7 ft. high from July to September. Grows best in full sun.
Teddy Bear Sunflower
Beautiful double 4-6" golden-yellow blooms are great for cut flowers. Makes an excellent border in front of larger sunflowers. A favorite with children. Dwarf plants grow only 18-24" tall. Annual. Organic Seed.
Despite the creepy-crawly name, the spider plant is among the most popular and easiest to grow of all hanging or trailing houseplants. Exceptionally hardy. A mature plant will form tight rosettes of arching leaves with a profusion of hanging plantlets on long stems, up to three feet, somewhat like a bushy green mane. Semi-shady to partial sunlight. Perfect for your office.
