Casper College will have a donation sale of starter plants on Saturday. Lisa Icenogle, college spokeswoman, says class projects have started a variety of tomato and pepper plants, and the college greenhouse is running out of room.

Donors decide what plant is worth:

“And so now we have these pepper plants and these tomato plants that are ready to be planted that will be up at the greenhouse, and they will be for sale for donation, so it’s really up to the individual how much or how little they want to give.”

Ms. Icenogle added that the greenhouse is little known oasis at the college with both flora and fauna, such as the resident birds and turtles. Construction, however, means the easiest way to get to the greenhouse is to park at the Alley Arts parking lot and go through the Wold or Loftin buildings.

Park where you would to go to Durham Hall:

“Folks are going to need to go through the Wold Physical Science Center or the front door of the Loftin Life Science Center. And there will be signs posted in all of the buildings so that you can get your way to the greenhouse and it’s really easy to get to once you get into the building.”

The greenhouse donation sale will be on Saturday, from 9 am to 2 pm, refreshments will be served, and the funds will go to a good cause.

Funds go back into the greenhouse:

“And then all the money that they make from donations that people give for each of these plants are turned back into the greenhouse to continue funding the greenhouse, to provide for supplies for the greenhouse, and that kind of thing.”
