Edible garden planted at Palmetto Elementary School
Palmetto Elementary School has launched its own edible garden as part of the Healthy Kids, Smart Kids initiative to inspire healthy living.
Under a bright sun and cloudless sky, Principal Maureen Wheeler led a large collection of students, staff and volunteers in digging and planting.
"It was a perfect planting day," she said. "The kids had a blast and learned a lot. When they say a picture says a thousand words it is so true. Just look at the students, staff and volunteers who came out to take part in the planting. Kudos for all of their great work and we look forward to the harvesting."
