The Lima S.P.R.O.U.T.S opened their greenhouse doors to the public for the first time over the weekend.

From cucumbers and zucchinis to tomatoes galore, the S.P.R.O.U.T.S. are selling vegetable and spice plants during the month of May. The money will go back into the program, which promotes bringing healthy and fresh local food into the community.

"It keeps the money in the community," says S.P.R.O.U.T.S entrepreneur Richard Conley. "We're trying to build a more permanent, locally grown agriculture within the city of Lima so it's very important that you support these kinds of programs because they will enable other people to pick up where we left off."

The plant sales will be going on the remaining weekends in May at the LACNIP Resource Center from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Happy Hour Gardens will be joining them May 19-20 selling flowers.
