Henderson students selling plants they've cared for all year

Henderson County High School has locally grown crops and flowers for sale. 

Students in the greenhouse class said they've been busy in the two days they've been open so far.

The first day, students sold more than $3,000 in plants.  

Twenty three students in the class have been germinating plants since school started in the fall.

The money goes directly back into the FFA program at the school so students can learn to grow crops and plants next year.

Students organizers say there is a wide variety for all gardens.

"We have a bunch of different vegetables in the back, we got cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes, some herbs and spices and different things like that," senior Cody Williams said.

The sale is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. weekdays and from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturdays. 

The greenhouse is in the back of Henderson County High School.
