Pictures: Hillcrest Elementary's Container Garden

First and fifth grade students teamed up to create container gardens. Students planted beans, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, peas and tomatoes. A container garden has a low start up cost and is a perfect for schools without a lot of outdoor space. Check it out!
