Whites Creek FFA students spent a Saturday afternoon working with the Whites Creek Community Garden Club.  The students are not only preparing a field to plant soybeans that will support the students' work making and testing biodiesel fuel, they will also help tend the garden and deliver fresh vegetables to those in need.  What a wonderful way our Cobras are working together with the community!  It's a win-win!
