Record Delta | Upsur FFA students sell moms in a seemingly insignificant workplace

Bukhanen – The fall is almost here and the recent cool temperatures have inspired many locals to decorate the season earlier. If you are looking for some spring flowers to add color to your home, there are chrysanthemums available in a variety of colors and sizes while the supplies are still available.

As part of the workplace, B-UHS FFA students are working hard for the annual Mother’s Day event that will benefit the group and the community. Joe Hames, a BHS agricultural instructor and FFA consultant, said the annual Mother’s Sales team is one of the many fundraisers the company runs throughout the year.

“All the money goes to keep the greenhouse running and to use it for FFA programs,” Hemes said. “This is one of the first marketing and order enforcement projects in the greenhouse. We work with wholesalers to provide high quality West Virginia moms to the community in a variety of colors. Students water and take care of moms and process customer orders and assist with after school during customer service, thus providing the student’s classroom experience and some leadership experience.

The outbreak is said to have caused some changes in the way FAA fundraisers worked last year, and this year they decided to continue with the new procedures and extend the online order for the annual maternity sale. When we were expelled from school in the spring of 2020 (Covid-19), we had to reconsider our greenhouse. We moved to a digital order form where customers could save their plants. Students really did it right because students can build orders and it limits the number of people in the greenhouse. We use the same order system Spring 2021 and allow customers to purchase in the greenhouse if they wish. So far, this has had good results for students, educators, and community leaders. ” So we do the same thing with our moms – people order online and drive to the greenhouse, we put them in their vehicles, they can pay in cash or by check.

According to Hermes, there are several layers to the FFA program and a variety of agricultural courses are offered in high school. I teach horticulture in greenhouses and plants, and then I have a forest class. Ms. Allison Lewis provides natural resources, animal husbandry, and agricultural entrepreneurship. We are also working to hire a new teacher who specializes in tax mechanics. ” “Our courses are varied and hand-made, so whether you are an electrician or a mechanic or an animal judge or a poultry judge, they are all professional.

If Hem can’t afford any moms this year, there are many other options throughout the year to support the FFA program. We do maternal sales, spring plant sales, and we sell meatballs. Our programs compete in many regional and state competitions, so there is always a need for fundraising. So don’t be discouraged if you miss out on Mother’s Sale because in April we will be selling a big spring plant with spring beds and some vegetables. ”

As long as supplies are available, you can still order beautiful fall moms in a variety of colors from the FFA team at https://tinyurl.com/BUmum21.
