CFCC students landscape Wilmington's newest Christian Recovery House


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- One group of Cape Fear Community College students put their green thumbs to the test for a good cause.

Students in Cape Fear's landscaping and gardening program spent the morning trimming bushes, pulling weeds, and mowing the grass at Wilmington's newest "Christian Recovery House" at Oleander Drive.

Students say this is a great way to apply their skills in a real-world setting, while also benefiting a worthy cause.

"It makes us feel good, you know,” student Zachary Laymon said. “Sometimes we spend a lot of time around the campus doing work, so it's nice to get out here and actually work in a different environment, and do something good for somebody that needs it."

Students are graded for their work, but Laymon assures us, that he and the rest of his crew will be making an 'A' for the day for working in this scorching summer heat.

Didn't know you could go to college to learn weed pulling and bush trimming.

It seems that you can go to

It seems that you can go to college for just about anything these days and this program would be the last I would sign up for. I have the blackest thumb on the planet and this would be my first F, so count me out on this one.
