Save some green at SHS plant sale

The annual sale begins on May 1


by: COURTESY OF SHERWOOD HIGH SCHOOL - Students tend to hanging baskets in the Sherwood High School greenhouse in preparation for the annual plant sale, which begins May 1.More than 60 Sherwood High School students have been busy growing mixed hanging baskets, vegetable starts, herbs and lots of bedding plants including marigolds, petunias, coleus, and lobelia.

Beginning May 1, the fruits of their labor will be available to the public as part of the school’s annual plant sale.

So far, students have grown almost 2,000 vegetable and herb starts from seed as well as having planted over 250 hanging baskets and almost 1,000 bedding plants.

“By going to the greenhouse sale, not only will you get a good deal – hanging baskets are $20 and vegetable starts are only $1 — but you will also get to meet the friendly and helpful and proud students who grew this healthy crop,” said Allison Meadows, a Sherwood High School agricultural science and technology teacher/Future Farmers of America advisor.

The money raised from the plant sale supports the Sherwood High School horticulture program as well as the Sherwood FFA.

The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 1 to 3, May 8 to 10 and May 15 to 17 in the Sherwood High School greenhouse in the back of the school.
