Operating hours will be 8-11 a.m. and noon to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The greenhouse will be closed on Thursday, May 3 and Friday, May 4 so that students may participate in the FFA State Convention.

A wide variety of flowers will be available this year, including marigolds, petunias, geraniums, creeping phlox, hibiscus, and coral bells as well as vegetable options such as tomatoes, peppers, and onions.
