The students at the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy are growing vegetables and produce in several gardens at the school.
But 6th Grade Science Teacher Phoebe Mount says this lesson is not just about gardening.
The students use math, science and art to create and maintain the gardens.
They will also provide fresh produce for the school.
The CLGA garden is supported by the Health Department's Step ONE program, through grant funds provided by the Junior League of Chattanooga.
This is the fifth year for the "Eat Smart Teaching Garden" grants.
They have resulted in over thirty teaching gardens in neighborhoods, schools, and daycares throughout Hamilton County.
