TOMAHAWK - Natalie Reimert is learning real world skills inside a greenhouse outside Tomahawk Middle School.
"[We learn] how to take care of them [and] how to grow them from the little tiny seeds to what we get on our dinner plates," said Reimert, who's a seventh grader.
For students like Ashton Anderson and Harley Daniels, watching tomatoes, oregano, and lettuce grow is all part of their own growth.
"[It's fun to] do things with others and help others when they were struggling with something," said Anderson.
"My mom and grandma, they like to plant and I've always wanted to help and I always wanted to learn," said Daniels.
This year, 16 seventh graders from Tomahawk Middle School had the chance to participate in the greenhouse project. They're learning things like how to plant, how to work together, and how to sell.
"[They're] running a little mini business and working as a team and problem solving things as we go along," said seventh grade science teacher Laura Schiltz.
Schiltz says this project is helping students like Reimert learn those real world skills can be planted just about anywhere.
"Everything was planted right here in this greenhouse," said Reimert.
The greenhouse project has been going on for years. Students will be selling plants until Friday. All of the money collected will go towards the greenhouse and school projects.
