Housebuilder Kier Living Eastern unveiled its staff’s hard work to Wyegate Park Academy, in Witham Road, before gifting them with wheel barrows, forks and watering cans so they can look after it.
The garden has been created at the school so the children can grow their own plants, fruit and vegetables.
David Thomas, Kier Living Eastern’s sales and marketing director, said: “It has been an absolute pleasure putting this together for the children at Wyegate Park Academy.
“We have been working hard creating superb new homes at nearby Kingfisher Court and when the opportunity came up to help the local community we jumped at the chance.
“Our staff have been hard at work to make this happen and we look forward to hearing what the children grow in the coming months and years.”
Kier Living Eastern reached out to the local community, asking them for any jobs they needed doing when the school replied.
The area at the school was initially covered in rubble and staff spent time clearing it before creating the allotment, which has raised beds.
Children were asked to come up with their own designs for the plot before they were brought to life by the award-winning housebuilder.
Kier Living Eastern is busy close by at Kingfisher Court, creating affordable homes for family living.
