Burgess-Peterson Academy students, whose committment to healthy eating and fresh foods garnered a visit last year from First Lady Michelle Obama last year, are headed back to the garden to raise fruit, vegetable and herb seedlings for East Atlanta Villagers and residents of neighboring communities.
The students will grow the seedlings, which will be ready for delivery or pick-up by March 26.
A schoolwide project, each of the school's seven grades will participate by growing a different variety of fruit or vegetable.
The plants are $2 each, which will be used to fund garden education efforts at the school.
Each student also will be able to take a plant home.
