Purchase Your Plants at the FFA Plant Sale
Posted on 04/14/2019
Despite this year's heavy winter, Finley's FFA students are prepared to host their 28th Annual Plant Sale..  The Finley FFA Chapter of River View High School invites the public to attend their 28th annual plant sale on Friday and Satuday, April 19-20.  The Plant Sale takes place from 11:30am-5:00pm on the 19th, and 9:00am-5:00pm on the 20th at the RVHS greenhouses.  Bedding plants, vegetables, hanging baskets, color bowls, annuals, perennials, and much more are available for purchase. 

This annual event is one that agricultural students and FFA members prepare for all year.  It all starts in October when the greenhouses are set up.  From that point on, the students in the horticulture class plant, propagate, pinch, fertilize, arrange, transplant and so on until the event.  There are many students involved in the classes who help perform these various tasks. 

At the sale, students are able to interact with customers in real life situations learning valuable customer relations and selling skills.  Each individual who walks though the door receives personal customer attention by students.  Students involved in this activity take home knowledge that can be applied to their life later on. 

This annual event is the main fundraiser for the Finley FFA Chapter, which has over 35 members.   Money made goes toward student FFA activities and expansion of the agriculture program at River View High School.  This is a check or cash only transaction.  For more information, contact the RVHS agricultural department at 586-7279 from 8AM to 3PM on weekdays.
