RESIDENTS are being encouraged to grow their own fresh veg in the East End.
A former derelict plot of land has been transformed at Thermopylae
Gate on the Isle of Dogs as part of the Grow Well scheme in Tower Hamlets which aims to support 60 community gardening projects in East London.
And 2,000 kits for growing salad leaves or veg in window boxes in high rises or house across Tower Hamlets are also being given out at Idea Stores.
Cyrus Todiwala who founded the Prescot Street restaurant Caf� Spice Nameste supports the scheme and said: "The excitement and thrill of seeing a seed grow into a plant, and a plant grow into a salad or vegetable is like nothing else.
"Tower Hamlets has taken this great big step towards creating a buzz and excitement around sustainability and should be commended for what it will bring to the community.
