Student-run farmers market at Glacier Peak High School runs May 7-8

Apr 29th, 2015 | Category: Community, News

SNOHOMISH – Students at Glacier Peak High School are leading a Farmers Market on Friday and Saturday, May 7-8, on school grounds. “The Bounty of this Place” will offer vegetable and flower starts, art, baked goods, soap, candles and bath products, according to teacher Alisa Myers. Students grew the plant starts, using donated soil and pots, and made many of the items for sale. Students also purchased their own seed and are creating their own table displays for the market – all part of their SAE (supervised agricultural experience) they are required to do as being part of a CTE (career technical education) style course, Myers added.  “Just like a science project or job they keep detailed records of their hours and work, they calculate costs and create their own marketing,” she said. “It’s a fun, unique hands-on crack at learning about urban horticulture and for many freshman their first time creating a marketing plan!” Hours are Friday 2:30 to 7 p.m. and Saturday 12:30 to 4 p.m. Glacier Peak High School is located at 7401 144th Place SE in Snohomish. Proceeds will benefit the Future Farmers of America – Supervised Agricultural Experience.
