Somerset schools celebrate garden grub victory
Eight Somerset schools have shared hundreds of pounds in prizes after securing success in the county-wide gardening challenge "Dig It, Grow It, Cook It, Eat It".

The challenge was organised by the Carymoor Environmental Trust education and nature conservation charity, and supported by recycling and waste management company Viridor, which manages the county's 18 recycling sites for Somerset Waste Partnership.

Almost 40 primary and secondary schools signed up to plant, harvest and eat their food, helped by a tonne of the Revive Soil Conditioner that Viridor produces from Somerset garden waste.

Details of their progress were recorded in colourful scrapbooks, which were judged by Carymoor Environmental Trust chief executive Frances Stuart, Viridor chief executive Colin Drummond, and Somerset environmental campaigner Tracey Smith.
