Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Students at Bennett Elementary are taking what they've learned inside to the outdoors.

The 4th grade class has been working closely with students from NDSU's Plant Sciences Department all spring. Students learn about plants and the process of growing them. They've started growing plants and started seeding growth and today they're finally moving their seedings into the ground.

Students say it's fun to be able to eat what they've grown.

Emily Zurn, 4th Grade: “You get to eat a lot more fresh produce, so it's really fun to be able to get outside and go into the garden, picks some fruits and go home and make a healthy dish.”

Students harvest all of the fruits and veggies and make things like vegetable soup and salsa.
