Cultivating one colossal cabbage


Austin Hoschka has proven that he has a green thumb.

The Woodbury Elementary fourth grader was chosen by the National Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program to receive a $1,000 scholarship thanks to the colossal cabbage he grew as part of Alana Hansen's third grade class last year.

Last spring was the first time Hansen participated in the program, as part of the third grade life science standard, so she said it was exciting that one of her students was chosen as "best of state."
