Arrowhead Elementary School first-graders were treated this week to hands-on sessions presented by the Virginia Beach Master Gardeners. The program was called "Ready, Set, Grow!" and focused on planting and environmental education. Students learned much more about plants and even had the opportunity to plant their own marigolds to take home.
