Student-Grown Flowers for Sale at Four Marshall County Schools

Students at Cameron High School, John Marshall High School, Moundsville Middle School and Sherrard Middle School are preparing to sell hanging baskets, vegetable plants, herbs and a variety of flowers they grew in their school’s greenhouse.

At each school in late January students began germinating seeds for tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, lettuce, cabbage and herbs. Then at the end of February plugs were purchased and transplanted for various types of other flowers. Students ensured the proper temperature and humidity were maintained in their greenhouse and monitored the vegetation’s growth daily.

Moundsville Middle School Agricultural Education students will begin selling their inventory on Monday, April 26, 2021 from 8:00 am until 3:00 pm. On Tuesday, April 27, 2021, the MMS greenhouse will be open from 8:00 am until 5:30 pm. After that, the hours of operation will be every school day from 8:00 am until 2:30 pm.
