SCHOOL GARDEN: Des Moines Students Grow Vegatables
Three Des Moines elementary schools are planting gardens this spring. Helpers built garden beds at Smouse Elementary on Tuesday. In about a week the kids will get their hands dirty planting outside.
The school received a grant from the American Heart Association. Teachers hope the gardens teach kids more about eating healthy. Cowles and Captiol view also received grants to plant gardens this spring.
