FORSYTH, Ga. — Some students from Samuel E. Hubbard Elementary School in Forsyth are using their hydroponic learning garden to help others.

The Tiger Sprouts maintain an indoor garden at the school where they grow collards, tomatoes, and much more. 

Friday, they kicked off their new growth season planting strawberries. 

Because the garden is indoors, they don't have to wait until springtime before passing out what they harvest to people around the community. Student Bella Sanders loves being part of the group.

"It's really exciting to come in here and be a part of Tiger Sprouts and learn how to make plants and help people in need," said Sanders.

The students harvested eight pounds of collards earlier this week that they gave away.
