Businesses and campus clubs gathered for the Holiday Plant Sale and Bazaar Saturday at the Horticulture Lab.
The event, which was hosted by the Horticulture Club, consisted of booths decorated with holiday items and more, to raise money for campus clubs.
“This is the first one,” said staff member Robin Johnson, “they’re hoping to have this annually.”
Not only were there Extended Opportunity Programs and Services, Bakersfield College Tutoring Center, and Agriculture Ambassadors booths, Earth and Sky Studio and Kern County Cattle Women were also in attendance.
According to BC student Tina Cssias, the money raised at the EOP&S booth, which held decorated cupcakes and cookies, will go toward CARE students.
“Some of them [students] bought it [food],” said Cssais, “and some made it.”
The BC Ag Ambassador Program had a booth that sold plants and seeds to raise money for representatives who are attending the National Agriculture Ambassadors Conference, which is going to be held in January at the University of Arizona in Tempe.
Even though onlookers found plants, gifts, ceramics and glass made by students’ hands for sale, goodies such as chocolate candies, coffee and barbecue food were also offered.
Special seats were also available to eat at while watching a waterfall pouring into a pond.
