CHILDREN at a Huntingdonshire primary school have been finding out where their food comes from and how its grows, thanks to their new eco-garden.

Pupils, staff, parents and volunteers at Brampton Primary School helped to create an eco area to improve the children's knowledge of growing fruit and vegetables.

A team from Huntingdon's probation office also lent a helping hand with the garden, completing the task in just one week and in time for the start of the new term.

The project was launched by mothers Claire Dwight and Mel Pearson, who approached headteacher Jacqui Watkins.

Mrs Dwight said: "The school now has an amazing new garden - it is ready to be planted and officially opened by the children.

"We can show others how creating a purpose built area for children is not hard and will enable our children to enjoy gardening and growing fruit and vegetables."
