Children at a primary school in Kingsbury gazed upon the fruits of their labour at the special ceremony to mark the official opening of a vegetable patch.
Scores of youngsters from Kingsbury Green Primary School (KGPS), in Old Kenton Lane, joined their teachers in marvelling at newly built garden which took months in the making.
The site was generously donated by business man Peter Motac who owns a construction company, called Motacus Construction, in Neasden.
Laura Wynne, headteacher at the school, said: “Gardening is a way to bring the local community and school community together.
“We are so grateful to Motacus for building our children this wonderful garden to be enjoyed for years to come.’
The school which is registered under the Royal Horticultural Society gardening for schools scheme, aims to teach the importance of healthy eating by growing their own fruit and vegetables.
KGPS has fundraised for gardening equipment by baking cakes and selling plants.
