The Horticulture program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College is holding a small Fall Plant Sale at the greenhouses and Building L located across from GNTC’s Floyd County Campus in Rome through Friday, Oct. 12. The sale hours are from 8 a.m. to noon on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. On Wednesdays, the sale takes place all day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fall plants being sold include flowering kale, pansies and mums. The flowering kale cost $2 each and the pansies cost $11 for a flat of 36 plants. There mums are available at $5 each. The sale will continue until Oct. 12 or until the plants are sold out. The kale and pansies are located in the main Horticulture greenhouses and the mums are located in a fenced area across from Building L. Buyers should stop by Building L first, said David Warren, director of GNTC’s Horticulture program. Purchases may be made with cash or check and credit cards are not accepted. All proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the Horticulture program at GNTC. The sale is a way for GNTC to contribute to the community that also gives Horticulture students real-world experience.
The Rome City Board of Education will meet Tuesday, October 9 at 5:45 p.m. at the Central Office, 508 E. Second St. Agenda
