Mayland Community College’s Horticulture Department held a plant sale on the Main Campus Wednesday, August 31. Proceeds from the sale benefited victims of hurricane Katrina. The sale of butterfly bushes, landscape conifers, and indoor houseplants helped raised around $250 as of Thursday afternoon, which will go to help those on the Gulf Coast through the Asheville branch of the Hands with Hearts organization. Pictured are horticulture student Ashley Smith who is describing the different types of plants to MCC Research Specialist Jennifer Vance and MCC instructor Lynn McKinney.
