A VEGETABLE growing project is going from strength to strength after becoming a hit with children and their families.

Plant It, Grow It, Eat It is allowing foodies to discover what it’s like to grow your own produce at the 17th century Tredegar House in Newport.

Participants have grown carrots, beans and peas inside raised beds at the mansion off Pencarn Way.

Duffryn Community Link has been running the scheme with partners, including Oxfam and the mental health charity Growing Space.

The project is enjoying success after it came second at the Keep Wales Tidy Awards at the beginning of this year.

Head gardener Steve Morgan, 47, said: “It’s just grown in appeal.

“It has been a huge success.”

A free Plant It, Grow It, Eat It session will take place at Tredegar House at 12pm next Tuesday.
