Prescott South Middle School Fall Plant Sale - TODAY, 3-3:30pm

The Greenhouse Program at Prescott South Middle School is unlike any other in the county.

Seventh and eighth graders, along with their energetic and caring teacher Casey Garrison, grow vegetables from seed for this annual fundraiser.  The students learn how to germinate seeds and care for the plants during multiple growing seasons as well as learning the basics of how to operate and manage a greenhouse.

Your support of the plant sale will help provide funds for continuing this unique educational experience.
