Since Horticulture Club did not sell any of the plants they had grown for Blooming Fest due to it raining that day, they were left with an abundance of plants and a shortage of funds.

“I still have a billowing greenhouse and no money back in the account. Our big money came from that street fair,” Horticulture Club adviser Corrie Stieglitz said. “We’re in a slight deficient from last year. I like to keep it even. What I took out for dirt and supplies, I have to put back in.”

Horticulture Club participates in Blooming Fest every year.

“Second semester we’re transplanting, planting seeds, getting ready for that sale (in the Blooming Fest). We depend on it,” Stieglitz said.

In order to fix both problems, the club held a plant sale on Thursday.

Staff received an email with a Google Sheet attached to it where they could pre-order the plants they wanted and pick it up on Thursday.

“My boss was like, ‘how about we do a Google Sheet?’ You know, being all Google-y that we are. It was directed more towards staff,” Stieglitz said.

According to Stieglitz, any plants and flowers left over will be donated.
