The plant sale must go on.
Every year, the Sardis Secondary Agriculture Program hosts a Mother’s Day plant sale. The flowers are planted by students in the program, and cared for by them. All of the money raised goes back into the program, which goes beyond gardening and helps students explore earth sciences in a multitude of ways.
Like everything else, this year the program looks a little different. With no students allowed on site, teachers have been taking care of the plants. And, right on time for the big sale, the plants are just about ready.
There are about 300 planters and baskets available for sale, and teachers will also be handling the sale for the students. There is a pre-order form (see link below), and physical distancing with drive-through pickup dates will be followed. There will not be a sale where buyers can walk around the peruse the plants.
The pickup times are on May 7 and 8, 11 and 12, and time slots are already filling up.
The program has been running for about 15 years now at Sardis, and the plant sale is their major fundraiser. To see the planters and baskets available this year, to order, and to set up a pickup time, visit their website.
