The Cedar Lane School (CLS) Horticulture Program will host “Plant Palooza” Wednesday, May 8 through Friday, May 10 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturday, May 11, 10 a.m.-2 .p.m. at the school, 11630 Scaggsville Road, Fulton.

Open to the public, the event will feature a wide variety of plants that have been cultivated by CLS students, including annual and perennial flowers, herbs, ferns, vegetable starts, succulents and houseplants. Additional goods made by CLS students also will be available.

CLS Special Education teacher Dallas Rosenthal oversees the program, which provides students opportunities to engage in a variety of activities that encourage independence, motor skills, job skills, self-regulation, language development, social collaboration and continual learning.

“We learn together, work together and encourage everyone to reach their full potential,” she says.

This year, Dallas won a grant from HCPSS’ education foundation, Bright Minds, to cover the cost of soil used to grow the plants.

Those wishing to bring home a plant or goods from the event are encouraged to make a donation (via cash or a check made out to Cedar Lane School). Donations will be used to purchase soil and other supplies to support the CLS horticulture program.
