TULSA - East Tulsa students have been developing a green thumb outside their classrooms this fall.
Rosa Parks Elementary students are contributing to the Global Gardens Food Farm Project, an initiative aiming to provide food to families.
The students and parents planted fruit-bearing trees Tuesday, which might take years before producing fruit. But the families are still excited and committed to the end, said Global Garden Project leader Maggie Regan.
"I kind of said 'you know, that's going to take a few years' and I loved that there was no hesitation from our families," Regan said. "They were invested already."
