An education you can eat


Located next to a ball diamond at the ACGC Junior/Senior High School in Grove City there's a plot of fresh black dirt that's nearly the size of a football field.

But there are no players running on this field chasing balls. Instead, early Wednesday morning there were half-dozen students walking up and down 300-foot long rows, hoes in hand, planting potatoes, carrots, onions, cucumbers and squash.

This fall the students will eat that produce in their school cafeteria.
