Home grown boys

“SIX Islington teenagers will be starring in their own television programme after finding inspiration in a rubbish skip.

The boys, who are all from estates around Caledonian Road, have been spending their weekends learning to grow fruit and veg in the skips to sell them on to local businesses.

Now the CBBC documentary series My Life will be devoting a Home Grown Boys episode to the teens’ innovative thinking, as it follows them trying to hit a £400 profit target in five days.

 Home Grown Boys will be shown on Wednesday, February 22, on BBC1, at 4.30pm”

  1. I’ve just seen a repeat of the prog on Home Grown Boys and was really impressed with what they’re doing for themselves and their community. Is their project still going on? Cheers, Wendy, Hayling Island.
