The play is part of the Royal Agricultural Society�s (RAS) FarmEd school incursion program and raises awareness about where food comes from, sustainability, technology in farming and careers in agriculture.

Music, dance, songs and puppetry are all used to follow the journey of a city girl Janet as she learns about different aspects of farming.

RAS WA president Rob Wilson said educating children about agriculture was a priority for the organisation.

�It is important children know where our food originates from,� he said.

�This entertaining and lively program teaches children about the significance of agriculture to our lives.�

The production will be at Craigie Heights Primary School on Friday at 9am.
