HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Hundreds of children, parents and teachers at Presbyterian Christian Elementary School put on their gardening gloves Tuesday for a beautification project that could last for generations.

They teamed up to plant trees all over the campus as part of the S.E.E.D. Program. That stands for Striving for Excellence in Every Dimension and it's a parent volunteer initiative to fund maintenance and landscape projects at the elementary and high school campuses.

Students in grades K-6 took part.

"What we've done is we've dispersed them all throughout the school and every classroom gets to help take part in planting a tree so they have ownership in their campus," said Beverly Browning, vice pres. of S.E.E.D.

"(it's) something later in the future that they can come back and hopefully bring their children enrolled in PCS and say hey, when I was your age, I planted that tree...that's my tree," said Virginia Katt, president of S.E.E.D.  

About 30 trees of different varieties were planted.
