UCHS Plant Sale: May 6-8
University City High School is holding its third annual community plant sale from May 6 through 8. This student-run sale was created in conjunction with the Center for Community Partnerships and funded by a grant from the Goldsmith Foundation. The sale responds to a need in the community for locally available gardening supplies with the long-term goal of establishing a more permanent student-run store on the high school campus.
This year, in addition to the student entrepreneurial venture of selling gardening supplies on consignment, the sale will feature hundreds of flower, vegetable and herb plants all grown by the students themselves in the UCHS greenhouse as part of their course work. And, as an added feature this year, the entrepreneurial team from Drew Elementary's fruit and vegetable stand, will be open for business May 6 and 7.
For more information on the Plant Sale, contact graduate student coordinator Tamara Sniad at 735-1443 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
