Plants for sale

While the annual Greenhouse Sale was canceled for 2012, CLC students have still cared for thousands of seedlings and a number of flowering and vegetable plants in the greenhouse on the Brainerd campus. Lawrence Hernandez of Brainerd is one of those students spending several hours each week giving nutrients to encourage optimal production. The Hort students will have a limited number of hanging plants and other arrangements available for purchase in the central core area near the cafeteria and bookstore starting Monday, said instructor Jeff Dirks. These items will have prices with them, payable in the bookstore. Other products of the greenhouse will be planted across the campus ahead of the summer completion of the College Drive Construction Project, so by fall the landscaped campus will look as good as ever.
