Students in La Crosse prepare for plant sale

Money raised will go toward new swings

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Students in La Crosse are planting the seeds of success and fun.

The students at Coulee Montessori are growing plants they hope to sell this year.

The students are already making plant hangers and caring for the 150 plants they have on hand.

They hope to have 400 plants available for the sale in May.

A lot of lessons are sprouting from the simple task.

“We’re learning about how to take care of plants. About business. We’re learning how to manage a business. We’re learning so much,” said Coulee Montessori fifth-grader Wren Saunders-Scott.
