With summer education programs in full swing, Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius stopped by Woodland Elementary School in Alexandria on Monday to tour the school's student maintained gardens and help serve lunch.

At the garden, Cassellius saw the tomatoes, lettuce and other vegetables that the elementary school children had planted and talked with one of the summer school classes that was learning about bees.
