Homegrown produce, nurtured by some of the youngest residents in Trawden, proves you are never too young to learn essential skills.

Known as Trawden Young Bloomers, a dedicated group of children have grown their own fruit, vegetables and flowers in their own raised beds.

They learned how to plant the seeds and had to work hard to keep the beds weed and pest free.

And now their efforts are being rewarded with a selection of vegetables including they potatoes, carrots and courgettes.

The project is part of Trawden in Bloom and the raised beds were financed by Jewsons and the top soil was bought with a grant from Pendle Council.

Braithwaite's of Colne suppiled the paint and the children chosen their own colours to paint their beds.
