YOUNGSTERS in Wisbech have been tasting the fruits of their labours after taking part in a project to encourage the growing and eating of fruit and vegetables.
Several schools took part in Cambridgeshire ACRE's 'Good Food for Cambridgeshire' project creating and looking after food gardens. They sowed, harvested and tasted crops such as new potatoes, onions, peas, broad beans, carrots and pumpkins.
The project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund's Well-being Programme and Cambridgeshire ACRE's specially-trained community gardener works with schools and the wider community to create community food gardens and spread the healthy-eating message.
Schools taking part include Orchards Primary School, Thomas Clarkson Community College and the Oasis Centre Nursery.

Project worker, Rachael Brown, has been impressed by the level of enthusiasm shown by all the ages taking part.
She said "All the children love to garden and growing their own food is a really good way to help them develop a liking for fresh fruits and vegetables".
