Plant sale at Chelmsford Valley District Composite School
greenhouse May 10 & 17
Chelmsford Valley District Composite School will host its annual
greenhouse plant sale on Saturday, May 10, 2014 and Saturday, May 17,
2014 from 9 am to 2 pm. Chelmsford Valley District Composite School is
located at 3594 Highway 144 in Chelmsford.
“Residents from across Greater Sudbury will be able to choose from a
wide assortment of beautiful hanging baskets, flowers and garden
vegetables that have all been grown in our school greenhouse,” said
Chelmsford Valley District Composite School Principal Pamela Potvin.
Principal Potvin thanked the many volunteers who work diligently
throughout the year to nurture the plants. “This annual event has been
held for the past 20 years with all proceeds to fund student bursaries,”
she said. “The greenhouse is contributing to the beautification and
sustainability of our community and supporting student success.” This
past year the Greenhouse also supported “at risk” programs for several
In addition to the Saturday sale on May 10th and 17th, the public is
welcome to visit the greenhouse and purchase plants every weekday from 9
am until noon.
About the greenhouse
The greenhouse at Chelmsford Valley District Composite School was built
40 years ago in the central courtyard of the school. Teachers and
students were involved in the project along with skilled trades. In the
past 20 years, a large contingent of community volunteers, mostly
seniors, and some staff operate the greenhouse, with great success.
Volunteers tend to the greenhouse each weekday morning and sometimes
weekends and holidays. Many people in the community support the venture,
not only by purchasing their plants from the greenhouse, but also by
providing free pots, planters and many cuttings that are used for
transplanting and propagating.
The greenhouse operates year-round with the exception of July and
August. Following start-up in September, the propagation of donated
plants begins and continues during the winter months. In the early
spring, the seeding of annual flowers and vegetables begins.
Watering and fertilizing is ongoing. This yearlong labor of love
culminates with the May sales where the community is invited to choose
from a wide assortment of healthy plants.
Over the years, the greenhouse has provided a natural classroom for
students from Chelmsford Valley District Composite School. Students
enjoy the peaceful setting as they help with seeding, watering and
general plant care. The greenhouse has also provided a perfect place for
science demonstrations on a variety of topics, such as photosynthesis
Students are encouraged to visit the greenhouse, where their questions
and inquiries are answered. They often volunteer their services and
assist with spring sales. Students also visit the greenhouse on special
occasions to purchase plants for family and friends.
