‘We are so excited about spring we wet our plant’

From press reports

The Ackerman AEST Plant Science class is gearing up for their annual
plant sale. Students have planted, fertilized, and watered a variety
of bedding plants and vegetables in the local AEST greenhouse in
hopes of making a profit to benefit a wide variety of opportunities
in the AEST classroom and the Ackerman FFA Chapter. The plant sale
will be held on the following days and times on a first come, first
serve basis while supplies last.

Tuesday, April 2 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Wednesday, April 3 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
Thursday, April 4 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday, April 6 from 8 a.m.- noon

The plant sale allows students to take the skills learned in the
classroom throughout the year and apply them in a hands on real world
setting. Students are able to experiment with growing techniques,
learn marketing skills, and have the opportunity to operate a small
scale business. “Working in the greenhouse has been a wonderful
learning experience and I have had a great time growing the plants. I
am so glad I made the decision to take this class,” says Johnny Douglas.
