GARDEN AT MULBERRY GROVE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Students at Mulberry Grove Elementary will soon be seeing the fruits of their labor. P.E. teacher Justin Joiner said they started the garden for the P.E. program. Money raised through produce sales will be used to purchase P.E. equipment, and help teach students how to eat healthy. They hope to show the kids there are tasty and healthy alternatives to snack and junk foods. The students brought in plants they wanted to taste or see grow. Joiner said they have a little bit of everything including eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, corn, turnips, and radishes. For more information about the garden, call the school at 326-8811.
