Twelve students in the Home Horticulture course at Fort Hay State University planted flowers along Main Street in Hays, KS. The service learning project is done in cooperation with the City of Hays Parks Department. Using a list of adapted flowers, students create plans for the planters. Started in 2002 the flower planting has been done each year as a final class project. Purchased with grant funding three flower planters bear the name "FHSU Agriculture Department Home Horticulture Class".
