C.S. Monroe Technology Center’s popular annual Winter Plant Sale kicked off today and will run through Friday.
The three-day sale will feature poinsettias grown by students, wreaths, roping, floral arrangements, Christmas cactus and cyclamen.
Refreshments from Monroe Tech’s Culinary Arts Department will be on sale. Checks or cash only for payments; no credit cards. All proceeds benefit the school.
The sale will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, Dec. 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 3, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 4, at Monroe Technology Center, 715 Children’s Center Road in Leesburg.
The school also hosts a spring plant sale and a fall plant sale. The three seasonal plant sales typically raise enough money to provide $15,000 worth of scholarships to students in the Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources program each year.
