Riverside students start school campus vegetable garden

Published: Friday, April 12, 2013 at 04:29 PM.

The club has six members, including Kaelyn Neville, 9, who had prior gardening experience. The third-grader daily tends to her family's garden, she said, but she hopes the club will help expand her knowledge.

"I never really grew peas, so I wonder how they grow that," Neville said.      

Kaelyn’s mother, Amy, said she thinks the club will benefit young members’ work ethic and appetite.

"If they grow a tomato, they are more likely to eat it than if you just put it on a plate," she said.


Riverside Elementary’s garden club seeks donations and resources. Interested donors can contact Lydia Bradley, bradleyly@mail.okaloosa.k12.fl.us.
