MARSHALL COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — It’s a busy and hectic scene for students and staff at some Marshall County Schools.
Monday, May 1, is the highly anticipated grand opening for the student run greenhouses.
It’s a day many folks in and around the county mark on their calendars.
They can choose from literally thousands of flowers, herbs and vegetables, all at fantastic prices. The amazing hanging baskets are particularly popular at Moundsville Middle School. Greenhouses are now open at both John Marshall and Cameron High Schools, as well as Moundsville and Sherrard Middle Schools.
They will remain open until everything is sold.
