Small Hands, Big Lessons

Tucson kids are learning how to take control of their health at the Tucson Village Farm.

Producer: Tessandra Salmon | Videographer: Omar Lopez | Editor: Joshua Montijo

The Tucson Village Farm is a cooperative extension between Pima County and the University of Arizona's College of Agriculture and Life Science. Children from all over Tucson can visit the farm and learn how to plant and harvest food.

Leza Carter, the farm's program coordinator, and Melanie Hingle, a UA assistant professor of nutritional sciences, discuss the importance of teaching kids how to eat healthy. They hope to fight issues, such as childhood obesity, while still maintaining a sense of fun.
