Vine Street turns trash into treasure

Vine St Elementary gives common items a second life. Turning everyday containers, such as milk cartons, into seed starting containers showed the students how they could start their own gardens at home. A snack of carrot roots growing in the garden was then a well-deserved treat. Some students jumped at the chance to move by helping in the garden; some students spread mulch to keep the weeds out and others watered the plants.
