Byron FFA Drive-Through Plant Sale

The Byron FFA Plant Sale is here, albeit a little different from years past. First, we will be providing a drive-through for patrons to come to the school and select their plants. We are asking folks to remain in their cars until they reach the plant staging area, and then they will be allowed to exit their cars in order to “shop.” Due to the mandated school closure, the quantity of items that could be grown is less than previous years. The quality, however, is the same - excellent.
