FOUNTAIN HILL, Pa. -

The lesson plan is growing at Fountain Hill Elementary School in Lehigh County.

Officials on Monday unveiled three raised garden beds at the school. It's part of a new program called "Eat Real Food."

Students will plant fruits and vegetables in the gardens next spring and learn about the health and ecological benefits of locally grown food.

The gardens were built with donated materials from Lowe's and Scott's Miracle Grow.
