Some children learned first-hand what it takes to create a new vegetable garden.

First-graders at Clay Elementary planted vegetable seedlings in their school garden in learning lessons on growing their own food.

"Many of these students don't know where food comes from," said Paula Cordes, the first-grade teacher who initiated the project.

The students also played a game where they matched the plant to a food they usually eat.

Today's project was part of the McEnally's Mercantile's "Plant, Grow, Eat" outreach program. Later in the year, they'll return to teach the students about bugs and their roles in pollination.
