A group of six girls raised more than $1 thousand for the SLO Food Bank by selling succulents to the community.

One parent involved said it was inspired by a girl's gardening teacher, who came up with the idea to sell plants and donate the funds to the Food Bank.

The girls asked family members and neighbors for unwanted ceramic or clay pots, and for three weeks, they worked to grow succulents.

The girls then posted pictures of the plants to sell on Facebook and sold about 40 pots.

The girls raised $1,072 overall. The SLO Food Bank said this will provide 7,504 meals.
