Each year the horticulture class is asked to order and create the senior night flowers for any senior night presentation made through the high school. This year was no different, we a large active senior class we were asked to design 44 senior night roses. The class enjoyed the challenge and got all the flowers done as a team in one class period (obviously previous days of prep helped) but thank you to the athletic department for allowing us to do this! Look for our designs next week for the volleyball seniors.
Mum plants that the FFA is selling is a constant care point in the greenhouse this fall. with over 400 mums, the horticulture class has been working in teams caring for 25-50 mums per team depending on the sales rate. Carsen has been a great asset to the program, and has really taken a leadership role. I personally took an interest in the hydroponic growth of cuttings of the mums, and am taking a grow challenge to heart. I have 6 different varieties that myself and Chris are working on, and we plan to record our findings and report back to the mum grower. Currently we have 36 starter mum plants in the hydroponic NFT system. Alyssa Garner
