CHILDREN can learn to grow their own vegetables at a half-term activity day.

The Stacey Centre, in Copnor, is hosting the free family fun day for children and their parents.

Youngsters can learn what vegetables they can start growing in spring and how to sow seeds.

They will get free seeds to plant including lettuce, carrots, peas, cabbage, spring onion and strawberries.

Children will also be able to make their own herby cous cous salad.

There will also be a treasure hunt with prizes.

Tracey Jones, the community gardener at The Stacey Centre, said: ‘There are little signs of spring now so the day will be all about showing children what they can start to think about growing.

‘It will be a great day with lots of fun activities to keep the children entertained during half-term.’

The activity day will take place on Tuesday, February 22, from 10am to 2pm at the centre in Walsall Road.
