The Prince of Wales has been taking lessons on how to grow organic food from a group of primary school children in Bristol.

Youngsters at Hotwells Primary School have been propagating and growing their own fruit and vegetables and gave the prince tips for his own garden.

Prince Charles also toured their new organic kitchen.

He was presented with a jar of school- made green tomato chutney and a copy of the school's new family cookbook.

Hotwells School was one of the first in the country to pilot the "Food for Life" scheme - a joint initiative with Bristol City Council and the Soil Association to put local, organic food on the menu.

Children from the school have also visited the Prince's Home Farm on the Highgrove Estate in Gloucestershire.
