While their peers sweated out exams and lectures last Friday, members of the high school’s greenhouse class did a little sweating of its own.

It was the day before the greenhouse’s annual grand opening and the team’s four managers were busy making everything just right while waiting on school staff who were buying up potted flowers and vegetable during what amounts to a sneak preview.
