COTTONWOOD, Calif. - The town of Cottonwood is joining forces to help children eat healthier and a local business owner had the idea of starting a children’s garden.

And through donations the owner has a dozen children planting vegetables and learning about the importance of saving water.

“We have a water reclamation system the condenser is a continuous drip of water and I didn't want that wasted and I wanted to show the children that we can save that water and use it for our garden,” said Wendy Williams, the owner of Wendy Lou’s.

Williams says the children are responsible for watering and taking care of their plants.

Once they blossom she hopes they can trade amongst themselves and learn great ways to eat these healthy foods.
