Annual plant and greenhouse sales coming up in battle ground schools

April 17, 2017


A variety of annual and perennial bedding and flowering plants, as well as vegetable starts and hanging baskets grown by high school students in Battle Ground Public Schools' greenhouses, will be for sale at upcoming public sales. Money raised from these sales supports the district's horticulture and Future Farmers of America (FFA) programs and welding teams. 

Students from Battle Ground High School, Prairie High School, the Center for Agriculture, Science, and Environmental Education (CASEE), and the FFA program grow tens of thousands of plants each year.
