I’m Crazy for Buying Plants Right Now! –Details on Finley Plant Sale!
SHOP AT THE 23RD ANNUAL PLANT SALE IN FINLEY
I’ve never been to one of these plant sales. I wonder if the prices are better than at Garden Centers. I’m guessing they might be!
Check it out!
The Finley FFA Chapter of River View High School will hold its 23rd Annual Plant Sale on April 18 and 19 at the high school’s greenhouses. Doors will be open each day from 9 AM to 5 PM. All are welcome to come shop for bedding plants, vegetables, hanging baskets, color bowls, annuals, perennials, and much more!
This annual event is one that agricultural students and FFA members prepare for all year. It all starts in October when the greenhouses are set up. Horticulture students plant, propagate, pinch, fertilize, arrange, and transplant until the day of the event. Many students are involved in the class to help perform these various tasks.
At the sale, students are able to interact with customers in real-life situations learning valuable customer relations and selling skills. The knowledge and experience gained by the students during the plant sale can be applied to their lives later on as well.
This annual event is the main fundraiser for the Finley FFA Chapter, which has over 40 members. Money earned goes toward student FFA activities and expansion of the agriculture program at RVHS.
For more information, contact the RVHS agricultural department at 586-7279 from 8 AM to 3 PM weekdays.
