You know of the Glee and Chess Clubs. So, what's this Garden Club? Students at Tucson High School are growing their very own produce. They've been working composting, watering, and learning the benefits and growth of Arizona's native species of plants. Today was the day they got to enjoy the fruits, or more accurately the veggies of their labor. Students of the Garden Club harvested over 10 lbs of lettuce. That lettuce was used on the hamburgers server in their school's cafeteria for lunch. The students say they like working outdoors and have dreams of pursuing careers in agriculture. Most of all, they like knowing where their food comes from.
