Turning lemonade into landscaping

For Shannon Leroy's third-grade class, recess means business.
That's when Lemonade for the Land hits the playground.
For the past week, the class has sold lemonade on the playground at Concord Elementary School in Anderson to raise money. After taking state tests in May, the class will spend the money it has raised on plants for the school grounds. The students will also plant the plants.
From their booths selling homemade lemonade, the children work together to benefit the environment.
"We decided to do it to help the earth," said class member Nella Stringer. "We split up into groups and my group talked about what kind of flowers we wanted. We thought we'd like to do some daisies. I would like to plant some tulips. We might even have enough money when we are done to buy and plant a tree."
