    Most people visit a library to get a book - but how about borrowing some kale seeds to take home and grow?

    A public library in the United States is loaning them out, to show the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables.

    The city of Tucson, Arizona, is designated a United Nations World City of Gastronomy, having over 4,000 years of agricultural history.

    Al Jazeera's Heidi Zhou-Castro reports from Tucson, Arizona.
