Green-fingered children in Tickenham have been growing their own organic vegetables.
Pupils at Tickenham Primary School have been putting its picturesque location to good use by growing cabbages, carrots and runner beans on a patch of land at the site in Clevedon Road.
They are now selling the vegetables to help raise money for new school equipment.
Co-headteacher Tristan Merriam said: “We are so excited about our latest project which is growing organic vegetables on site.
“We have such a beautiful site and the children and parents are putting it to fantastic use.”

The vegetable patch is also being used to teach children about recovering from failure when a vegetable fails to grow properly.
The fundraising for new equipment comes after the school recently unveiled a new playground after spending thousands of pounds over the past few years on improving outdoor play facilities.
