The annual University of Hawaii Maui College Christmas Plant and Ceramics sale will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the campus agriculture greenhouse and the UH-MC ceramics studio.
This year, students are growing nine varieties of poinsettias. Two varieties, Red Glitter and Monet, are new this year. White, pink and seven different red varieties, including the Winter Rose types, are being produced.
In addition to poinsettias, a selection of native plants will be for sale as well as some fruit trees and an assortment of landscape plants including gardenia and lavender.
The ceramics program will also be selling pottery and sculpture in the Heona Art Building. Students have designed planters and bonsai pots for this year's sale. The art department has also created a 2013 wall calendar as a fundraiser that features a student painting, drawing, print, photograph or sculpture as each month's image.
All proceeds from the sales support the Ceramics or Agriculture and Natural Resources programs.
Parking is available in the main parking lot or at the Maui Recycle Center off Wahinepio Avenue.
From the main parking lot, there will be signs to the greenhouse heading uphill toward Wailuku. The Heona Art building is across the road from the greenhouse.
From the Recycle Center parking lot, the road toward campus leads to the greenhouse entrance on the left and the Heona Art Building on the right past the new science building. For more information, call 984-3243 or 984-3285.
