Kids at one Hannibal school got to see first hand exactly how they get their food.
Students in Ms. Stock's second grade class at Oakwood Elementary planted herbs, flowers and vegetables Wednesday afternoon. Jessie Dryden, who organized the event, says the kids will grow the plants inside until it warms up. She hopes the exercise will give students a better understanding of where their food comes from.
"Over the past year when I started doing the community garden project, I was asking kids where their food came from and many of them had no idea. I mean they said Walmart or the grocery store so it's just kind of showing them how something little like a seed can grow into a plant," Dryden said.
The seeds will be planted in the community garden early next month.
