Squires Garden Centre donated 75 packs of salad seeds to Surrey County Council, for their ?create a salad dish? competition.
Julie Nelson (Public Health Lead at Surrey County Council) and two Children?s Rights apprentices picked up the seeds from Squire?s Garden Centre in Woking.
The competition is for looked after children ? children living with foster parents or living in residential homes in Surrey.
The children and their carers need to grow their salad leaves, then create a dish with them, and submit a photograph of the dish at the end of May. The winning dish will receive a ticket to a theme park.
Sarah Squire, deputy chairman at Squires, said ?We are delighted to support Surrey County Council in this gardening initiative, and look forward to seeing the winning salad dish!?
