Hennepin Tech’s Student-Led Plant Sale Back In Person
Students in Hennepin Tech’s Greenhouse Management program are once again hosting their annual plant sale.
And they couldn’t be more excited about it.
“We get to come in and talk to people who are just as excited about plants as we are,” said Jeremy Thornbill.
The plant sale was drive-up and curbside last year. But this year, it’s back in-person.
The plant sale provides most of the funding for the Horticulture department. Sales dropped by about two-thirds without an in-person event.
“Like every business we all hurt a little bit but I’m hoping it will recover,” said Deb Kvamme, horticulture instructor.
There are five greenhouses offering a variety of hanging plants, flowers, vegetables, succulents, and even fairy gardens.
“I like this part of it, actually selling it and seeing why you did all the work that you’ve done actually has a purpose,” said Dan Thomas, greenhouse management student.
The sale runs from May 5-7 at Hennepin Tech’s Brooklyn Park campus.
