Students at a Corona elementary school celebrated the end of a fruitful school year on Tuesday.

P.S. 14 in Corona held a June Harvest Festival. All year, students, teachers and local volunteers have got their hands dirty to make their community garden flourish.

Organizers say urban gardening in schools helps build strong teamwork and leadership skills. The kids say it's a fun science lesson.

“We get to plant plants and we get to learn about them and like where our food comes from,” said student Aura Lozona.

“I was a little surprised because I always just thought they bought it from [the store],” added student Karen Hernandez. “I didn't know that you plant it first.”

The students will have a taste of all the vegetables they've grown.
