Parkside High School Celebrates Horticulture with Friendly Competition

Posted: Updated:

 

 

SALISBURY, Md.- Spring is in full bloom in Parkside High school in Salisbury.

"It's like a festival." That's how horticulture instructor, Jerry Kelly, describes their "All-America Selections" Garden Launch and Community Celebration.

On Wednesday, community leaders and students partnered up for a friendly gardening competition using the flowers students have grown throughout the school year.

"We're one of two high schools in the country that have the All- America Selections available for the community," says Kelly.

The All-America Selections, or AAS, is the only national, non-profit plant trialing organization in North America. According to their website, the independent non-profit organization tests new, never-before-sold varieties for the home gardener.

This year, the program achieved its ambitious goal of selling $100,000 in plants and other products created and grown by the students.

"This is only possible thanks to the support of the community that's like a family to us," says Kelly.

The A+ Garden Center is open to the public on school days from 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
