In the strange times we live in how can we celebrate the harvest?
Revd Elaine’s cracking idea was to encourage children to understand where food comes from, summer or winter, and to comprehend food poverty and the foodbank. She found schools in Nanstallon, Lanivet, St Petroc’s and Bodmin College had growing space as well as the community garden on the Kinsman estate. Funding from the National Lottery and invaluable support, advice and gifts from Mark at Bodmin Nursery enabled seeds, plants, compost and pots to be delivered in mid-October. Children have started planting to show that you can grow things in the winter. They will tend to them and watch for the broad beans,
cabbages, peas, rhubarb, and others to grow.
