200 volunteers started their Saturday working at the BIG DIG in Dallas.
The day of service involved students, school staff and volunteers working to create a school learning garden.
The garden is being built at Sudie L. Williams Elementary School. Students will now have a modern outdoor learning classroom.
It is all collaboration between Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas and REAL School Gardens.
Once the garden is installed, REAL School Gardens will hold on-site teacher training for three years to help teachers use the garden to improve academic performance, said Scott Feille, Regional Director of REAL School Gardens.
