US (DE): Bright Spot Ventures poinsettia sale at DHSS Greenhouse
Bright Spot Ventures, which employs, empowers and equips young people aging out of foster care and adults with disabilities, has grown more than 2,700 poinsettias in the DHSS Greenhouse on the Herman Holloway Campus near New Castle. The sale runs through Dec. 23.
Available in red, white and pink, the 6.5-inch pots have four to six blooms ($7.95 each, including pot cover and sleeve); in hanging baskets ($20); and large floor pots with multiple plants ($30). In addition to the traditional colors, the greenhouse also offers poinsettias in burgundy, sparkle and marble.
“Buying poinsettias for your home, workplace or church is a great way to celebrate the holidays and to support employment opportunities for young people aging out of foster care and adults with disabilities as they learn about horticulture and business,” DHSS Secretary Rita Landgraf said. “We are so appreciative of our partnership with Bright Spot Ventures, and the difference this program is making in our community.”
Orders of 25 or more plants are delivered for no additional charge to one location in New Castle County. Smaller orders can be picked up at the greenhouse, 1901 N. DuPont Highway (U.S. 13) on the Herman Holloway Campus. Follow the signs for the greenhouse, which is open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.
