Students grow to love compost, kale, healthy eating


An environmental science class in Michigan is moving from the classroom to the garden. "We started composting last year in the cafeteria, and of course that creates nice, rich soil," Teacher Juli Tripicchio said. "The next step is creating this garden. They're learning about the benefits of local foods — not having pesticides, not having transportation all the way from California and the CO2 emissions.” (Detroit Free Press)
