Lakeview FFA Chapter helps plant pansies

The Lakeview FFA Chapter volunteered to help plant pansies for the City of Natchitoches. Lakeview FFA members were: Salem Johnson, Gracie Niette, Karmen Jarriett, Meagan Corley, Emily Windham, and Haley Windham. These members are involved with plant science career development events (CDE), such as floriculture and nursery landscape. The Floriculture CDE requires students to identify plants, judge flower arrangements, and solve problems. Participants also demonstrate skills in flower arranging, propagation, and preparation of floral and foliage products for sale. The Nursery/Landscape CDE test students’ skills in aspects of maintaining landscape plants and related products, evaluating equipment and services, and landscape design. Our members look forward to helping the City of Natchitoches in the future!
