The annual SCC flower sale on the Beatrice campus begins today and runs through Wednesday.

There are many different types of plants, and all the money goes back to the SCC AG program.

Kevin Christiansen works with students for the flower sale, as he has done for around 8 years, but in sum, the sale has been going on for around 20 years.

Christiansen explains, “There around 8 to 10 thousand flowers sold each year, and around a couple hundred people attend the sale every year.”

He added, “There are around 15-20 people that work the sale every year and they spend usually around five to eight hours a week getting the sale ready to go.”

They have to check up on the plants and water them mostly every day leading up to the sale, and a lot of the help comes from volunteers or students in the AG department.

The sales hours are 4 – 7 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Christiansen explained that people come through on Monday.

The sale is located on the north side of Jackson Hall and could end early depending how many flowers they have left.

There are more than 15 types of different plants sold at the sale, and the prices on the flowers run $1, $2 or $4 depending on the type of flower.

Christiansen said, “All the money from the sale goes back into the AG production budget, and it is a great fundraiser for the AG program.”
