ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some south Georgia students learned about farming by getting their hands dirty. Students at Lamar Reese School Of The Arts are putting together an educational garden.

With the help of volunteers and faculty, 3rd graders brought the materials and began planting Friday.

As they grow crops from collard greens to kale, students learn where their food comes from, as well as some math skills.

They have big plans once harvesting time arrives.

"We will actually come out and harvest what has been produced. And we're actually going to take it to our cafeteria, which is located right around the bend there, and actually wash, and clean, and cook, and eat," said Principal Angela Shumate.

K-5th grade students will also have the opportunity to help out.

The crops are expected to be ready for harvest in February.
