A world of discovery awaits city students at the Rural Discovery Day at the Brisbane Showgrounds.

The 'ag-ucational' day brings the country to the city to teach primary school students that food comes from farms, not the supermarket shelf.

The activities have been developed to align with the Prep to Year 4 Australian Curriculum in the subject areas of Science, HASS, Literacy and Technologies.
