Will Morse, Nick Morse, Sam Vining, Jessica Pullara, Jordan Geer and Abigail Hall are some of the Polk County High School students who will help with the school’s FFA annual plant sale, which starts April 2. Plant sale hours are from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The FFA will also hold a sale on Saturday, April 7 and Saturday, April 14 from 8 a.m. – noon for individuals who cannot make the weekday times.
During the Saturday sale customers will have the opportunity to participate in the first “Build a Basket.” Students will assist plant customers in selecting and planting flowers in a 10-inch hanging basket. Agriculture instructor Kevin Bailey said, “We want our students to learn firsthand what it is like to build a relationship with a customer and feel this will be a great experience for student and customer.”
