large." hundreds turned out to the vigo county fairgrounds earlier today. that's as they took part in the 14th annual master gardener spring seminar. groups sold seeds... plants... and homemade crafts. vendors also taught folks how to be better gardeners. there was also something new at this year's event! students were able to teach based on their own growing experience. news 10's garrett brown was as at the special event today. he has more on what students are planting in the garden of minds. <it didn't matter if you were a beginner or an expert. this event at the fairgrounds was about promoting growing life from the ground up. one class was not just selling plant. these students passed on what they have learned. shearea barrett is one of many interested in growing her gardening skills. others just like her gathered at this seminar -- saturday. barrett says she is not an expert but it's a goal she is working towards. "yes this was the first time i came here for this event and i just wanted to learn a little more. see what kind of plants were here." students in ivy tech's newly created "intro to greenhouse management are helping people like shearea reach their gardening goals. "i was actually really happy to be able to take this class. i was focusing on berry bushes such as blue berrys, black berrys, black raspberry's and grapes." each student focuses on a plant group. students then get to sell their grown plants at places like the spring seminar... and share what they've learned to help future growers like barrett. "oh it means a lot. to be able to educate somebody else on what you've been educated on and to take something that you know that you grew and be able to sell it to somebody and watch them be able to produce fruit is amazing." barrett says she is interested in doing more with the class. "i definitely hope that they continue to learn as well and they can continue to perusing their passions and also educating us as a community." now if you would like to buy some plants from the ivy tech greenhouse program... we'll have more information on how to do so on our website. that's at wthitv.com. back to you.>
