Gwinnett Tech Horticulture Program Hosts Edible Plant Sale
May 12 Sale Will Be Open to the Community


Gwinnett Technical College's Environmental Horticulture program is holding its second annual community edible plant sale on Wednesday, May 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Gwinnett Tech Greenhouse, adjacent to Building 600.

The edible plant sale features produce and herbs grown by Gwinnett Tech horticulture students and raises money for the Environmental Horticulture program. Items featured in this sale include:

"The edible plant sale is a chance for the horticulture students to literally share the fruits of their labor with the community," says Aaron Poulsen, Environmental Horticulture program director. "We receive great feedback and participation from the community any time we host a plant sale, and we really look forward to these events."

Gwinnett Tech offers an associate degree and a diploma program in Environmental Horticulture, plus certificate options that train students for employment as a landscape design technician, landscape/greenhouse installation technician, and in floral design.
