Student-run greenhouse open for another season


WILLMAR -- The hanging baskets and the petunias are blooming brightly at the FFA greenhouse in Renville. Geranium blooms are starting to peek out.

The greenhouse operated by the Renville County West School District FFA was a popular attraction last week for people who just couldn't wait to get their hands in the dirt. The greenhouse opened for the season on April 19.

The greenhouse is staffed by students from the FFA, under the direction of teacher Darrel Refsland.
