Plants that are not sold at the plant sale are donated to various groups from year-to-year. For example, last year during the pandemic, plants were given to Vocational High School students to take home for Mother’s Day.

According to the teacher, the students do everything when it comes to caring for the plants, from seeds to blossoms, the students take the lead.

McCarthy Teszler School is a Spartanburg District 7 school serving the unique educational, behavioral, and therapeutic needs of special needs students from all seven Spartanburg County school districts.
