Students from Berryhill High School took their biology class outside Monday to learn a valuable lesson.
They grabbed shovels and helped plant vegetables in a community garden in west Tulsa.
The garden was built in the old swimming pool at Challenger Seven Park three years ago.
Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett said community gardens are about more than just planting.
"What better opportunity to have, but to get to know someone when you're in the process of growing something, so it's very beneficial to a lot of people," Bartlett said.
Strawberries planted in the garden last year are already ripe for picking.
