Lanivet Under 5s Nursery and Lanivet School were among a number of groups benefiting from ‘planting bundles’ of flowers and vegetables funded by the National Lottery Fund.
Revd Elaine Munday and a team from various churches in the Bodmin Team Ministry bought the goods from Bodmin Nursery, who helped to choose the right items, adapted their products to suit the project’s needs and gave great value for money.
Other schools benefiting are Berrycoombe, St Mary’s, St Petroc’s, Beacon Ace Academy, Nanstallon, Cardinham and the Greenfield Centre and Pathways and Works Skills Sixth Form at Bodmin College as well as the Kinsman Community Hub’s One for All garden. The project began in autumn 2020, when ‘harvest bundles’ were distributed. The early summer delivery in 2021 included seeds, plants, pots, soil, compost and fertiliser to continue the work the growing work. Redv Elaine said: “We are pleased to support schools as they provide outdoor learning for the pupils and students.”
