Nebo’s Going Green

Green House Landmark High School

Nebo’s green houses are well on their way.

Landmark’s greenhouse is full, and the night class has been a huge success. The students are planting for local businesses and even the cities.

Springville High has over 100 hanging baskets complete with thousands of bedding plants well on their way.

Salem Hills High transplanted over 3,000 seedlings on a month ago. The gemination trays look great and will have enough plants to fill their house too.

If you get a chance, go take a look. Great things are happening in Nebo School District!
