School kids across Saskatchewan are getting their hands dirty this month to find out where their food comes from.
The ministry of Agriculture says more than 1,500 grade 3 students will participate in eight Food Farm projects across the province.
Students in Swift Current and Yorkton are planting a garden this week.
Carrie Burnett with the Saskatchewan ministry of Agriculture says the purpose is to show students their food comes from the ground and not just a store.
The vegetables will be harvested in the fall by students and donated to the local food bank.
Food farms are also being planted on Thursday of next week in Moose Jaw and Kindersley.
