Chequita Hughley’s Lincoln Elementary Magnet School kindergarten students prepare soil in a raised garden bed as the Dougherty County School System kicked off its Teaching Gardens program Friday. The program’s goal is to help students learn the food cycle and to promote healthy eating habits. In the next two weeks, four other elementary schools — Turner, Alice Coachman, Radium Elementary and Lake Park — will start their own gardens. (Staff Photo: Terry Lewis)
