GNTC’s Spring Plant Sale Continues April 7-8
Tuesday, April 6, 2021
The Spring Plant Sale at Georgia Northwestern Technical College, an annual tradition in Rome, will continue April 7-8.
On Tuesday the sale began at 8:30 a.m. and ended at 6 p.m. The sale will continue this Wednesday, and Thursday from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Purchases may be made with cash or check.
The sale is a way for GNTC to contribute to the community that also gives horticulture students real-world experience and a way to display their work.
“We grew more ferns than ever, but I think they were gone by noon,” said David Warren, program director and instructor of horticulture at GNTC.
“It is first-come, first-served.”
Items being sold include large selections of annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, hanging baskets, blooming plants and potted geraniums. The vegetables will include tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers, eggplants and more.
The sale is taking place at the greenhouses located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus, next to the Woodlee Building. All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the horticulture program at GNTC. For health and safety precautions, social distancing guidelines will be in effect and employees, students and guests are asked to wear protective face coverings.
