Over 25 student vendors will be selling: plants, herbs, fruits, vegetables, jewelry, and pancakes. The event will also feature a Mother’s Day activity, where you’ll get the chance to customize paint a pot and plant a succulent inside. The activity can double as a Mother’s Day gift, according to Highland High student Alex.

Proceeds from the plant sale will go towards funding Highland High’s FFA programs such as fees for leadership conferences, awards and monthly events for students.
