Davis High FFA plant sale starts Friday

By From page A1 | April 26, 2013

Davisites looking to spruce up their vegetable and flower gardens should visit the Davis High School greenhouse on Friday and Saturday when students in the school’s Future Farmers of America program will be selling everything from petunias to tomatoes to succulents.

The plant sale takes place on Friday from 3 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. in the greenhouse, which is located on the Oak Street side of the high school campus at 315 W. 14th St.

FFA students grew the plants and will be selling most for $2 each with larger color bowls selling for $10 to $15.┬áStudents hope to cover their $300 in costs with enough funds left over to put toward next year’s FFA projects.

First-year agriculture teacher and FFA advisor Ellie Michel said all of her students have helped out in the greenhouse over the course of the year, with a team of dedicated students putting in time nearly every day, including the vegetable crops team which includes Aimee Maria and Cassie Miguel, DHS juniors who were busy watering everything on Thursday in preparation for the sale.
