Kids were getting their hands dirty Wednesday, and the adults didn't care.

In fact, they were encouraged to dig in the dirt as part of a program to build healthy bodies and minds.

At the Boys and Girls Club in South Los Angeles, they learned about planting a garden that will provide them with nutritious vegetables.

The program is sponsored by the American Heart Association's Teaching Garden. It shows kids about healthy activities and healthy lifestyles.
