PUPILS are tasting the fruits of their labour thanks to a successful fruit, vegetable and herb growing scheme.

Tomatoes and carrots are now some of the lip-smackingly good produce that can be found in Notre Dame School’s garden, which has been transformed into an edible oasis by students.

They have been working hard on the patch over the last several months as part of  a pioneering sensory learning initiative, which aims to better their understanding of where their food comes from and the importance of healthy living.

All of the plants and seeds were donated by the Alameda Gibraltar Botanic Gardens.

Its expert gardeners were also on hand throughout the duration of the project to provide gardening advice to teachers as it evolved.

Christine Gilder, who heads the Alameda’s education centre, visited the completed garden to congratulate the pupils for all their hard work.
