FFA Plant Sale Kicks Off Tomorrow

The seventh annual Richland School FFA plant sale is Thursday-Saturday, April 18-20. A variety of hanging baskets, tomatoes, peppers and the major fund-raiser’s most popular blossoms in four-packs and 4 and-a-half-inch pots will be sold Thursday from 3-6 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 8-11 a.m. — while supplies last. Available plants include: Coleus, Lantana, Geraniums, Portulaca, Pentas, Impatiens, Dianthus, Vinca, Begonia, Dahlia and hanging baskets of Wave Petunias, Callibrocia, Geranium, Begonia, Lantana and Portulaca. Ag teacher Jeremy Doggett said the students have worked very hard to offer “plants that are ready to go to work for the people of our community,” and noted these will be the only sale dates. New this year are Squash and Cucumbers. Proceeds support the local FFA’s efforts to achieve the organization’s goal to “prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population.”   RHS FFA / SUBMITTED
