BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Students at William H. Natcher Elementary School got to play outside on Thursday and plant seeds to learn some life skills.
In the fall of 2016, Natcher Elementary teachers David Baxter and Neesa Richardson wrote a grant to start a community garden at the school. After they were awarded the grant, the school got to work.
Over the past few weeks, the students have put in three days of work on the garden.
Baxter said the best thing about this project is that anyone can participate.
"This is something everybody is able to participate in, from our youngest students all the way up to sixth grade. We've got parents, teachers and our administrators involved. There's really a place for everybody here in the garden whether they're planting ,digging, or helping us plan and organize our work," Baxter said.
Baxter hopes to use what is grown in the garden to feed students in the cafeteria, for class science projects, and to feed students who need assistance getting meals at home.
