Battle Ground Public Schools hosts annual plant and greenhouse sales

April 30, 2018

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 available for purchase 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. Some of these plants are used in landscaping projects on school campuses, while the rest are sold at annual public sales. 

Community members are encouraged to arrive early for the best selection and bring boxes to carry purchased plants. Upcoming sales will be held:
