Gale Community Acadamy Plant Sale

Tomatoes, Chile Green, Red and Jalapeno Peppers,
Various Sun and Shade Flowers, Hanging Flower Baskets,
Potted Plants and Herbs

All Grown By Parents and Students in the
Greenhouse of the
Gale Community Academy

Plants are available for sale in the greenhouse during
school hours until 6pm. Saturday and Sunday,
the greenhouse will be open from 8am-9am.
Starting in May, plants will be available in the
teachers parking lot on Saturdays and Sundays
from 8am-11am.

Clara Hayes, John Hoekwater and 46 parents, teens
and volunteers have spent 2000 hours, building the

plant tables, installing the drip irrigation system and
planting and maintaining the seedlings. Much of the
seed and soil material was donated by Ball Seed Co.
in Batavia and Gethsemane Garden Center.

Many of the teens that volunteered received credit for the
16 hours of Community Time needed towards graduation.
Clara anticipates a fall plant sale also that will feature mums
and poinsettas and the goal of the program is to raise approx.
$10,000 to purchase
educational products and services for
the school.

In my first visit almost 2 months ago, the plant tables were not
yet complete and only some of the plant trays had been planted
and today, the plants are ready for sale.
Everyone who participated should be congragulated.
