Glen Rose High School Horticulture class needs your help!

ATTENTION PLANT ENTHUSIAST:

The Horticulture class is looking for 10-12 individuals who would be willing to let them keep their outside plants in the greenhouse for the winter.

We are needing each plant to be of a different species, with the goal of propagating new plants off of yours, in order to increase the variety in our greenhouse. Your plant will be pruned, watered, and fertilized in a state of the art, climate controlled greenhouse throughout the winter months and returned next spring. Along with a health plant you will be given first pick of the spring plants to help grow your own collection. Please contact Mr. Clarke or Mr. Bozarth with any questions. Thank you for all this great community does in helping grow our Agricultural Program.
