BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -  Hutto Middle School students along with the Decatur county 4-H Program hosted their annual AG Day festival. 

Students learned about the impact that agriculture has on their Bainbridge community.

They got a chance to climb up in a tractor, plant their own crops, and pet goats and pigs.

Decatur county Extension Coordinator and 4-H Agent Lindsey Hayes said, “A lot of our students live inside the city limits and don't have access to getting out in the farms or in the fields. So they get the hands-on opportunity to see exactly where their food and fibers are coming from.”

Students competed in games and got to bring home their own radish plants.
