Winter Garden

At Little Pearl Elementary School, a cafeteria manager and Nutritional Advisory Council student members planted a winter garden during the Fall of 2015. The garden contained plants such as broccoli, green cabbage, parsley and cauliflower. In the following months, they watched the plants grow and harvested their crops in the winter.
