The Life Skills class at Oak Grove Middle School in Davidson County is growing in more ways than one.

Teacher Gloria Cline started a class garden two years ago and it's grown from one raised bed to 10 beds.

The class even has its own greenhouse so they can start their plants from seeds. Cline says the students get so much from working in the garden and it even matches their curriculum.

But the students want to expand their garden and get some tools to help them grown more produce which they plan to donate to local pantries. The school is up for a "Seeds of Change" grant but they need your help to win. You can go to the "Seeds of Change" website  and vote for Oak Grove Middle School.

The garden and the hard work of the students and their teacher is a great example of What’s Right With Our Schools.
