TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

On Wednesday some young students will learn about farm life by working the University of Arizona's fields.

They'll be part of an event kicking off National Nutrition Month which will also feature National 4-H Council President and CEO Jennifer Sirangelo and Arizona 4-H executives.

The 110 kindergartners will take turns going through several hands-on activities at the Tucson Village Farm on North Campbell, including planting, harvesting, and games that teach about farm life.

Tucson high school students who have been trained as "4-H Healthy Living Ambassadors" will help lead the program.

Tucson Village Farm is a working urban farm built by young people for Tucson.  The UA says it has served more than 22,000 children in Arizona.
