Garden program bears fruits of student learning
Students who attend Harry S Truman Elementary School and their families had the chance to tend to its new vegetable garden over the summer.
The garden was initially planted by third, fourth and fifth grade students in May and hosts a wide variety of different vegetables including cabbages, onions, beans, peppers and tomatoes.
“There’s a lot of tomatoes,” HST student Madelynn Dilliard, whose family recently maintained the garden said. “It’s real easy picking.”
Western Salisbury Elementary opened its doors to the public toward the end of the school year, with eager students inviting all who entered to share in the celebration of the Leader in Me initiative with an interactive showcase.
