Fundraising to start soon for new MVTHS greenhouse

Officials say current greenhouse is too small

MT. VERNON — An upcoming fundraising campaign will raise money to build an expanded greenhouse on the campus of the new Mt. Vernon Township High School.

The MVTHS FFA Alumni Chapter plans to start the campaign in December. FFA officials hope to raise roughly $50,000 to $75,000.

The total cost of the new greenhouse is expected to be around $150,000 to $200,000. Whatever's raised through the campaign will be matched by MVTHS and state grant funding.

Learn more about the fundraising effort Wednesday on this site or in the print edition of the Register-News.
