The plants that Culpeper County and Eastern View high school students grew and cultivated in their greenhouses are going up for sale.
The schools will be selling the plants at their greenhouses 9 a.m.-4 p.m. May 1 and 8. Eastern View's Greenhouse is located behind the school's gym. While there is a bit of variation in what the two schools grow, they essentially have the same offerings to include varying annual bedding plants, plants, vegetables and hanging baskets.
Melessa Suder, Eastern View's Future Farmers of America advisor, encouraged people to come out and purchase the plants because the sale supports the school system.
To top it off, she added that "we strive to offer varieties of plants you won't typically find in the big box stores and sell them at a much cheaper price."
"The plants are well cared for and have provided an excellent learning opportunity for our students," Suder said.
All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the schools' Future Farmers of America chapters and be used for competition registration fees, convention costs, community service projects and more.
