Riley Stirling will leave Vietnam with an unforgettable memory about her learning and working on a vegetable farm in the central region.

Stirling, a four-year-old girl born to a Canadian father and a Hong Kong mother, had a lot of fun gardening when the family visited Tra Que, a local village famous for its fresh vegetables, in Hoi An City, Quang Nam Province.

The hardworking little girl was seen taking the job seriously and doing it with passion, with help from her mother, two locals, and her family’s tour guide.

Below are some photos of the adorable little farmer on a traditional Vietnamese vegetable farm.
