JD Repp, WVU Agriculture student, spent the day with fifth grade teaching them about soil.
Students took their new knowledge outside to analyze the soil in Rose Mary's Garden.
They measured the raised beds to determine how many of each vegetable would fit in each bed.
Students used their math skills and lot of cooperation to finish the task.
Students also had to document all their findings so the first grade students would know where to plant.
Students added the necessary soil and compost to be certain the garden would be ready for the plants.
