The Olympia FFA will hold its annual plant sale on Saturday, April 30th, and Saturday, May
7th, from 9 AM-1 PM, at the high school greenhouse. The Olympia FFA members have worked
hard throughout the year to get plants ready for sale. The FFA chapter is growing over 45
plant varieties including annual flowers, perennials, vegetables, herbs, and hanging baskets.
Out of the 45 varieties, the wave petunias seem to be the most popular. Starting at the
beginning of the second semester of the school year, students in an agriculture class plant plugs and seeds in the greenhouse to sell to the community. Then, throughout the semester the
students have taken care of the plants by watering them, giving them fertilizer, and transplanting them when needed.
While all of the students work hard to get the plants ready for the sale, a small group works
especially hard. This group is the greenhouse managers. The 2021-2022 group of greenhouse
managers for Olympia are Anna Sanders, McKenna Lally, and Saegen Pierce.
Along with the individual plants, the FFA is selling yard art signs, and metal planters. These
items were created with the chapter’s CNC plasma cutting table. If you would like to order a
yard decoration or any sign please contact the high school (309)379-5911 and ask for Mr.
Hoffman or email - firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds from the plant sale benefit the
Olympia High School FFA Chapter.
