There will be something extra special to celebrate at the Tuntable Falls Preschool and Primary annual fete on Saturday.

The school has just been the recipient of a $60,000 grant from Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden program and will be showing off the results.

An unused paddock has been transformed into a productive garden and an old classroom into a working kitchen, giving kids the opportunity to plant, cultivate, harvest, cook and eat their own produce.

The fete, which runs from 10am till 4pm, will also offer wood-fired pizza from their newly build pizza oven, freshly made waffles with ice-cream and lots more.

Stalls will include seedlings, secondhand clothes and bric-a-brac. There will also be art and circus workshops.
