US (OR): Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm’s guidance helps Sherwood High tulip project bloom

A sea of tulips is blooming at Sherwood High School. Now the agriculture students who planted the bulbs are eager to make a sale.

Last November, the Intro to Agriculture class taught by Liberty Seal planted 2,700 tulip bulbs at Sherwood High School’s greenhouse. Barb Iverson and Karen Bever of Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn were on hand to supervise as 35 students prepared soil and pots for tulips with names like Maja and Purple Dream.

The tulip project is the brainchild of Seal, who teaches agriculture science in the school’s Career and Technical Education Department. Seal called the tulip project significant because it is the first group of Sherwood students to plant perennials with industry guidance. It is also the high school’s first planting project started solely by Intro to Agriculture students.

Each student in Seal’s class is a member of the Sherwood chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA). Describing it as an intracurricular program, Seal said the students can apply the agriculture and leadership lessons learned in classes to their own FFA projects called Supervised Agricultural Experiences.
