A variety of annual and perennial bedding and flowering plants, as well as vegetable starts and hanging baskets grown in Battle Ground Public Schools’ greenhouses by students and staff, will be available for purchase at upcoming public sales beginning April 23 and continuing into the first part of May.
This year, the sales at Battle Ground and Prairie high schools will be drop-in, with no registration required.
Battle Ground High School’s Agriculture Department has a large selection of hanging baskets in various sizes available for sale this year. There will be a limited selection of other plants, including zonal geraniums, primrose, succulents, sedum flats, and flowering patio pots. No annual bedding plants or vegetable starts will be available to the public this year.
Money raised from these sales supports the district’s horticulture and FFA programs and welding teams. Students and staff from Battle Ground High School; Prairie High School; and the FFA program grow tens of thousands of plants each year. Some of these plants are used in landscaping projects on school campuses, while the rest are sold at annual public sales.
The first of these events will be held at Battle Ground High School on Saturday, April 23 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The BGHS greenhouses are located at 300 W Main St., Battle Ground.
The Prairie High School event will be held multiple days, Wednesday, May 4 through Friday, May 6, starting at 3:00 PM, and Saturday, May 7 from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. The PHS greenhouse is located in the southwest corner of the campus at 11311 NE 119th Street in Vancouver. Signs will be out to help direct traffic.
