On Friday, April 16th, the Woodford County High School greenhouse opened to the public. The building is filled wall-to-wall, top-to-bottom with vegetables and flowers alike. The flourishing greenery was grown and maintained by the greenhouse class, taught by agriculture teacher Mrs. Probst. After months of seeding, transplanting, and mixing dirt, the plants in the greenhouse were finally ready for purchase.

Below is a gallery of photos taken before the opening day of the greenhouse; observe the lush greenery and vibrant flowers.

The greenhouse is currently in stock of:

  • Tomatoes
  • Peppers
