When Miss Marigold challenges the kids at Pepper Lane Elementary to turn an unpromising patch of their schoolyard into a garden full of fruits, flowers, and vegetables, they know they'll need all the help they can get. Soon everyone in the community is lending a hand—including an unlikely neighbor with a soft spot for gardening—and it isn't long before peppers, zuccchini, sugar peas, snapdragons, zinnias, and much more are growing and blooming.
 
· Back matter includes photos of students gardening in real school gardens and information on how readers can start their own school or home garden project.

Zack stared at the weeds and litter. "Here? You're kidding."
"It's hard as a rock," said Daisy, scuffing the soil.
"Lots of gardens start out like this," said Miss Marigold.

. . .

After recess, the students went back to the classroom full of ideas for their garden.

"But how do we start?" asked Zack.
"School gardens take plans, plants, and people," said Miss Marigold. "Then you water, weed, and wait."
