The horticulture department is run and taught by Jodi Riedel. Jodi is one of those teachers who becomes the students' favorite and most influential teachers. She inspires a love for horticulture in her students and many go on to study this in college. Jodi says, "The plant sale is the perfect opportunity to support youth and the local agricultural push." Also, all the money raised goes directly back to the education of the students and the program... it is sustainable.
