The Bossier Parish School for Technology & Innovative Learning (BPSTIL) held its first Agriculture Plant Sale on Thursday, March 21 and Friday, March 22, 2024. The plant sale event was held on the BPSTIL campus in Bossier City. Proceeds from the plant sale will go directly back into the agriculture program at BPSTIL.

“All of the plants that we have for sale are planted by our students. It’s part of our curriculum where our students are learning different methods of growing seeds. This is teaching them to grow plants in various ways, and this is the end result. It gives us a good opportunity for them to see an end result with the hard work they put into it,” said Julie Malone, Agriculture Science teacher at BPSTIL.

Patrons of the event had the opportunity to purchase plants, wood projects, eggs, chicks (roosters), and Ag T-shirts.
BPSTIL offers students a wide variety of courses, including allied health, automotive, small engine, carpentry, welding, culinary arts, legal studies, graphics, TV production, computers, and school-to-work options.

Additionally, they create a real-world learning environment that will empower students with the tools needed to adapt and succeed in their post-secondary plans.

The mission of BPSTIL is to provide meaningful instruction that will allow students to develop realistic career and educational goals to achieve a purposeful life and provide a better-skilled workforce for our community.
