The Horticulture classes at Owen have produced an abundance of bedding plants, vegetable transplants, hanging baskets and more. We would like to invite you to our plant sale and encourage you to spread the news to as many people as possible. All our proceeds go to sustain the program and pay for FFA Members to compete in career development events and attend leadership conferences as well as scholarship funding. To get to the greenhouse, enter the second Owen entrance and the greenhouse is at the top of the hill past the security gate.
