School garden teaches more than how to make things grow

While working in their school garden, these kids are learning many things, including English.   - - Donna Poisl


CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Some Charlotte high school students are learning chemistry, history, even English, all from working in the school garden.

They are getting down and dirty at the Garinger High garden.

When we visited, 11th grade English as second language students were working in the school's garden for the first time.
