Last spring, Spring Grove Public School started a garden and using the produce that was harvested in the school cafeteria. The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the fresh, homegrown produce.

The planting has just begun this year. On April 4, third-grade students along with their teacher and garden coordinator, Karen Stenhoff, and her husband, Roger, began transplanting the 100 Romaine lettuce plants that were started inside.

Other upcoming additions to the garden will be tomatoes, green peppers, onions, radishes and kohlrabi.
