YOUNGSTERS celebrated the fruits of their labours this week for the school garden project they’ve tended for two years by opening it to the public.
Pupils at St Paul’s Primary in Whitechapel began sprucing up their garden and growing their own vegetables after getting a �3,000 Lottery grant in 2007.
Parents and volunteers helped get the garden off the ground’ while the kids added wildlife by making butterflies and bumblebees from coloured paper.

Assistant teacher Colette Mitchell said: “We’re hoping the cook will soon use the vegetables for school dinners—that’s our next step.”
The enterprising boys and girls also made �30 from selling pots of herbs, flowers and bags of lettuces. The money will be put back into the garden to grow everything from broad beans and spinach to pumpkins.
