Battle Ground Public Schools hosts annual plant and greenhouse sales

April 13, 2021

A variety of annual and perennial bedding and flowering plants, as well as vegetable starts and hanging baskets grown in Battle Ground Public Schools’ greenhouses by students and staff, will be available for purchase at upcoming public sales beginning April 24. Stock is limited this year.

Reservations are required to purchase plants at the Prairie High School sale, while Battle Ground is offering a first-come, first-served sale. For everyone’s health, COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at the sales, including the requirement that everyone wear masks. Thank you for helping us to keep our community safe.

Money raised from these sales supports the district’s horticulture and FFA programs and welding teams. While the variety of plants available for purchase is limited this year due to the pandemic, there are still many items to purchase that will spruce up your garden this spring and summer.

Students and staff from Battle Ground High School; Prairie High School; and the FFA program grow tens of thousands of plants each year. Some of these plants are used in landscaping projects on school campuses, while the rest are sold at annual public sales.

Battle Ground High School

  • Saturday, April 24
  • 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (will close earlier if baskets sell out)
  • BGHS greenhouses, 300 W Main St., Battle Ground
  • Cash or checks accepted at time of sale

Battle Ground High School’s Agriculture Department has more than a thousand hanging baskets available for sale this year. No other types of plants will be available this year at BGHS.

The BGHS greenhouse will be open for basket selection, with staff and volunteers following COVID protocols of 6’ physical distancing, masks on at all times, and only allowing a limited number of people in the greenhouse compound at one time. Traffic flow will be controlled and entrance and exit will be two different gates. The traditional east gate in the parking lot at the gym area will be the point of entrance. It will be first come, first served. We will be asking people to wait in a physically-distanced line at the gate.
Please come prepared to carry your own baskets to your vehicle.

Prairie High School

Prairie High School’s plant sale will occur over multiple days. The event requires advance sign up for selection and purchase to assist with physical distancing and safety. The program will have baskets, vegetables, bedding plants and foliage plants available for purchase.
