Greene Students Learn about Horticulture in New Greenhouse

Posted: Updated:

Greene County has a new greenhouse - thanks to donations from the community.

Students at William Monroe High School spent months raising funds. Now the $25,000 building is up and running behind the school.

Students in the school's horticulture class are spending a lot of time in there, planting flowers and vegetables.

"It is a teaching tool for me, we  plant, growth, nutrition, sole structure, fertilizing, watering, plant propagation, all of those things are taught basically trying to prepare students for careers in horticulture," said Rhonda Bowman, agriculture and horticulture teacher.

Bowman says she hopes by this time next year the students will be selling the plants they grow.
