Orrick FFA opens new greenhouse, plant lab to the public

Orrick High School FFA formally opened its new campus greenhouse and plant laboratory Tuesday. The project, funded by a grant and local contributions of labor, materials and money, is already filling up with student-grown plants. Above, Ava Lafferty, 8, an Orrick second-grader, shows her family a zucchini squash she planted to study germination for a class project.
