'The gardening team at Ingleton Primary School have spent the last few weeks preparing their fruit and vegetable box for the Great Yorkshire Show competition.

The National Farmers Union and the Yorkshire Agricultural Society are combining to encourage schools to grow a box of fruit and vegetables for the Great Yorkshire Show as a way of encouraging children to enjoy eating vegetables and fruit they have grown.

Ingleton's box contains strawberries, blackcurrants, tomatoes, peppers, a cherry tree, fennel, chard, curly kale, lettuce, beans, peas, nasturtiums, sweet peas, marigolds, cornflowers, sage and lavender.

The children hope that the diversity of plants will attract lots of wildlife to promote pollination.
