Money Raised for Upcoming Conference in Nelson
The Castlegar Transitional Training students put on a successful plant sale in late-April to raise money for participation in an upcoming conference.
The students, their instructor Jim Leitch and some much appreciated volunteers are grateful to all of the students and staff who bought plants at the fundraiser on Thursday, April 23.
Students at the plant sale that took place on the Castlegar Campus in late-April. The students sold plants they raised in the campus greenhouse.
Earlier this year, the students planted tomato plants, marigolds, Asiatic lilys and hanging baskets. With the help of Stephen Seaborn, the students tended to them all spring in the Castlegar Campus greenhouse.
Most of the plants were donated by Pam at Castlegar’s Family Tree Gardening and the proceeds of the sale ($170) will be used to help students attend the Branching Out Conference for differently-abled adults in Nelson on May 12 to 14.
The Castlegar Campus Transitional Training students would also like to express their thanks to staff for supporting their popcorn sales throughout the year.
