On Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28, Snow Roots will host a plant market on Snow College’s campus.

Students and community members can purchase plants in front of the bell tower on Wednesday and Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm. Plants sold will include plants that Snow College’s gardening club, Snow Roots, have grown throughout the school year.  Plants sold will include everything from house plants, herbs, tomatoes, and daisies.  

Profits collected from the fundraiser will go towards the construction of a new greenhouse or the maintenance of the current greenhouses on campus.

Colin Lyman, Snow Roots Club President, says his favorite part about gardening club is, “Being able to spend time in a greenhouse, almost every day, to see the growing progress of the plants and flowers.”

Snow Roots club member, Hannah Stephenson, explains her interest in the gardening club, “I love being with people who share the same interests as I do and participating in an activity I’m passionate about, with those people.”

Stephenson encourages students to join Snow Roots, if they’re looking for a club that allows them to care for plants they’ve grown, and also to have the satisfaction of eating their harvested edible plants.

Snow Roots allows all club members to voice their ideas and opinions for future plant growing plans. Members’ ideas are put into action, as long as the idea fits within the club’s budget.

Currently, members of Snow Roots are growing flowers for Mother’s Day arrangements. A past growing project, involved growing a salsa garden that consisted of tomatoes, onions, garlic, and other salsa ingredients. Once the plants were ready to harvest, members picked the fruits of their labor and combined them with other vital ingredients to mix up a batch of salsa to snack on.   

If one is interested in learning more about the activities that Snow Roots conducts or wants to know more about gardening club as a whole, meet in the small greenhouse by the science building on Wednesday from 7:30 for club meeting.
