Horticulture classes with plants up for grabs
Starting April 24, each Wednesday in May, the horticultural program at Chemeketa holds plant sales from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. between Bldg 2 and the bookstore.
Customers can choose from a variety of plants such as cucumber, squash, pansies, and zinnias. Prices range from $3.50 to $8.00 for potted plants. Hanging baskets are $26. All proceeds from the sale are going back to the horticulture students.
The practicum class select seeds from brands Ball and Selecta and raise them from autumn until they are ready for the plant sale in the spring.
The plant sales will continue throughout May or until plants run out.
