Loudoun’s Horticulture Club Reaches Out to the Community
On April 20 and 21, Loudoun’s Horticulture Club hosted a booth at the 23rd Annual Leesburg Flower and Garden Festival in downtown Leesburg, Virginia. The club sold geraniums and other annuals they propagated in the greenhouse. This year they sold more than 2,800 plants. The money they made from the sales is donated to fund the student gardens around campus and the Horticulture Program. They also take this opportunity to share information about NOVA’s Loudoun Horticulture Program.
“This is a great opportunity in securing student learning as well as publicizing NOVA’s offerings,” said David Scheid, Horticulture Program head.
