South Valley elementary students planted drought tolerent garden

VISALIA, Calif. (KFSN) -- Some grade school gardeners in the South Valley are getting a taste of the "new normal" when it comes to growing plants during a drought.

Their plants got a little water today as they were put into the ground, but otherwise they're expected to grow with minimal moisture. The drought-tolerant garden was installed at Hurley Elementary School in Visalia.

Master Gardeners volunteered to help install plants, irrigation and fencing as a way to encourage water conservation.
