Gardening 101

It may feel a little chilly out, but it's the perfect time to grow vegetables. Just ask ESE students at Tallahassee's Raa Middle School. They're tending to their very own garden.

It's part of a co-curricular program where students learn responsibility by growing broccoli, peas and carrots.

They also use the veggies in their math, science and reading courses.

"Excited because I think we can get out and grow stuff and we can have our garden look good at our school. It will make people come by and look at them, you know. That's what made us happy," said Anthony Harvey, a Raa student.

Students will even get a chance to taste their products before donating the vegetables to area food banks.
