A Cool Sensation - Aloe Cute Combo
Celebrating Bajan/Canadian activist, social worker and politician, Anne Cools.
During the Black Power Movement in Montreal, Cools participated in the 13-day peaceful protest-turned-riot at Sir George Williams University (now Concordia). She was one of 97 students arrested, serving two months in jail when she refused to plead guilty.
As a social worker, Cools was one of the pioneers in the protection of women from domestic abuse. She would go on to found Women in Transition Inc., one of the first shelters for domestic violence victims in Canada. Although now a former member, Anne was the first black member and the longest-serving member of the Senate of Canada.

How would you look after being in a dark box for a few days? Most plants will need a good drink, place in medium light and increase after a few days if needed. Do not repot for at least two weeks to avoid stressing plants out further.
