Anticipation is growing for the Future Farmers of America student plant sale at Lebanon High School.

The sale will begin on Friday, April 15, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and continue on Saturday, April 16, from 7 to 11 a.m. The greenhouse at LHS will be open the following weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. - or until they are sold out.

The plants, including vegetables like tomatoes, peppers, squash and cabbage, and annual bedding plants were grown by students. Agriculture teacher Summer Major said the vegetables came from seeds and the rest came from plugs. "Students in the greenhouse management class started growing them in January," she said, adding that the vegetables were grown by popular demand. "We've had people asking for it and we thought we would grow them and see."

Funds raised during the sale will go back into the greenhouse account, benefiting FFA.
