High school seniors Kendra Meissner, left, and Jamie Early build a seed tower as part of their senior project. The tower, which helps to sprout seeds before transplanting them into the soil, is part of the Evergreen Elementary School garden.

Last Thursday morning, seniors Jamie Early and Kendra Meissner lugged a crab pot filled with their books through the halls of Wrangell High School. It was part of Spirit Week and "Anything but a backpack" day.

It was a combined effort between the cousins, much like many other things they do, including their senior project.

Early, 18, and Meissner, 17, decided in October to tackle the Evergreen Agricultural Testing Site (EATS) garden for their project, cleaning up weeds, preparing soil beds, building grow towers and even building a larger-volume composter for the elementary school.
