Green-thumbs within the Niagara College community can get excited; the Niagara-On-The-Lake campus’ greenhouse is preparing for a clear-out sale. In efforts to clear away the last crop of plants, staff and students at Niagara College can expect amazingly low prices on their future garden while supplies last.
The greenhouse helps students within the Horticulture Technician, Greenhouse Technician, Landscape Technician, and Landscape Horticulture Techniques programs gain vital experiential learning; through the hands-on, real-world experience of working in the educational greenhouse, students are able to learn about a wide-range of different plants. By growing these plants themselves- raising them from the plant nursery until maturity- NC students are better prepared for their future workplace.
“Our quality is great, [but] our selection is dwindling,” said Matt Orr. Orr is the greenhouse director at NOTL. “Hanging baskets are $10 each, [and] Patio Planters are priced to go. It is time for us to clean out the greenhouse and get it ready for the new crop of students.”
Drop by the NOTL campus today between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. to get some great deals on plants; not only will you be growing your garden in no time, but you’ll be helping NC students as well.
