Liberty County High School will kick off its spring plant sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the school greenhouse.
The sale will continue through the week with the greenhouse open to the public from 2-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 31.
The students of Liberty County High School's Agriculture Department have planted herbs, perennials and everything in between. The horticulture classes have worked diligently to prepare plants for the community. All plant products in the greenhouse are grown chemical-free using organic products.
Students learn valuable lessons about propagation, soil structure, sustainability and planning through the greenhouse activities.
"I learned how to identify aphids and mealybugs in the greenhouse, as well as how to properly remove them from plants," said student Alisha Merced.
"While in the horticulture class, I learned how to care for plants and accommodate their specific needs," Trevor Roop said.
“Learning how to mix fertilizer the correct way and when to apply fertilizer were two valuable lessons that I learned in the greenhouse," Nick Thomas explained.
Prices range from 50 cents to $8. All proceeds go to the agriculture program, paving the way for students to attend leadership events and buying needed materials.
