HAGERSTOWN - They've sold 13,000 plants in just over a month and are hoping to sell the other 7,000 annuals, perennials and vegetables filling the greenhouse at Washington County Technical High School.
Students in the school's elective entrepreneurship course plan for and help operate the greenhouse, which has been open at the school since April 4 and will remain open until the plants are sold.
The greenhouse is in its third year operating as a self-sustaining business at the school.
Steve Frame, who teaches the entrepreneurship courses and manages the greenhouse, said the students start at the beginning of the school year planning to open the greenhouse.
Erin O'Brien, a senior at the school, said her class helped select the type of plants sold at the greenhouse by researching customer requests and what has been offered in the past.
