SCHOOLCHILDREN in Cumnock have been growing and cooking their own meals from scratch.

The new programme, Growing Together Cooking Together, has now launched at Dumfries House letting kids harvest vegetables from their own gardens before preparing a meal of soup, bread, and a treat for their year group.

P7 pupils at Netherthird and Greenmill schools enjoyed the workshops which promote healthy lifestyle choices and encourage pupils to learn in an “outdoor classroom” environment.
