The Grant Career Center Horticulture students are busy preparing for the spring bedding plant season by transplanting, fertilizing, and moving up plants into their final growing containers. The students, under the direction of instructors Gary Broadwell and Nancy Weis, are growing a wide selection of vegetables, annual and perennial flowers, and hanging baskets for your gardening enjoyment. Many new varieties have been added this year and customers are encouraged to shop early for the best selection.
Mark your calendar for the spring opening on Wednesday, April 17, 2013. The Greenhouse will be open each school day from 11 AM to 2 PM and until 6 PM each Thursday (except for Thursday evening, May 16). The Greenhouse will also be open during the Community Appreciation Dinner on Saturday, April 20 from 5-7 PM. This year the Greenhouse will also be open on two Saturdays for your shopping convenience. Stop by and shop on Saturdays, May 4 and 11, from 9 AM to 1 PM and pick up great plants for your yard and garden.
The Greenhouse will close for the season on Friday, May 17 at 2:00 PM. The staff and students hope to see you and your green thumb this growing season!
