LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Some students at J. A. Fair High School have a green thumb.
Earlier this year they planted turnips, collard greens and mustard greens in a school garden.
Now, the plants are ready to harvest.
“East Initiative” students were in the garden Thursday, picking the produce.
They’re giving the fruits of their labor to different community groups just before the holidays.
“It warms all our hearts, but my heart especially, because this is my last year and I love to see people come out and actually get the greens we spent so much work on,” says Kayla Brazle, J.A. Fair High School Senior.
In the Spring, the class plants sunflowers and sends the seeds to other schools.
