doesn't grow on trees
The best things in life may be free but it's impossible to do our work without financial support. We are very grateful to the following funders who have chosen to support our projects:
The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded Growing Together Cornwall CIC two grants totalling £20K.
This funding has enabled us to create the inaugural St Agnes Sunflower Festival, now approaching its third year. Thousands of people have joined the fun, growing sunflowers and sharing their stories. We have even seen a similar project start up in nearby Newquay. Let's Get Growing, is an innovative project to encourage people new to gardening to grow their own food. In collaboration with media specialists C&T, we are creating online digital resources to help people grow food, whatever their experience level or the space they have available.
Magic Little Grants has awarded Growing Together Cornwall CIC £500.
This funding allowed us to continue the St Agnes Sunflower Festival for a second year. We were able to buy seeds, other materials and equipment so that we could distribute sunflower kits to hundreds more households. Last year, with COVID restrictions eased, we were able to hire a venue in the centre of the village and run a face-to-face sunflower planting day. It was wonderful to see the joy and excitement that planting a simple seed can bring.
