LAS VEGAS - Green Apple Day of Service is a week away, and one local school is working to make its campus green and put the savings where it counts.
Walter Bracken STEAM Academy is rethinking how a school can run. Teachers and students are improving their school and enhancing education.
"We're teaching the children to conserve our water here in Las Vegas," said Principal Katie Decker.
Students and staff are removing thirsty grass and replacing it with turf, vegetable beds and gardens.
"We're going to get rid of grass and add new beds so that the kindergartners can actually plant vegetables," student Jenna Phillips said.
It saves money for other things.
"We don't have to spend all that money on water and electricity, and we can use our money for things that are important," said student Yohanna Tagapan.
Students are planting peppers, pomegranates and pears. The kids say the new plants look better.
