COLDSPRING — The Coldspring Garden Club visited Coldspring-Oakhurst High School on Feb. 2.

The group enjoyed a tour of the Ag Facilities and a hands-on experience of what goes on in the high school CTE classrooms.

Students in Advanced Floral Design paired with 20 members of the Garden Club for a tour of the high school facilities. The visitors were introduced to the Coldspring FFA Chapter and learned more about the program from the Coldspring FFA Officer Team and were each able to participate in the creation of a Bud Vase arrangement to take home.

Students in Advanced Floral Design assisted them step-by-step through the process and answered any questions they had along the way.

Floral Design Instructor Ashlie Taylor said the garden club members were impressed with the courses offered to COHS students and the skills that are being taught in the floral design program.

“They were very grateful for the opportunity, loved their flowers, and said they looked look forward to another chance to tour our greenhouse later in the spring,” Taylor said.
