Q. Who or what is Growing Together Cornwall CIC?
A. We are a Community Interest Company. This a special kind of company, in our case a 'not for profit', which has a focus on helping people and communities. We have 'Articles of Association' held by Companies House, which are legally binding. These include an 'asset lock' which means that if we cease trading any assets we have must be transferred to a similar CIC.
Q. How much will it cost to sign up?
A. Nothing. Not a penny. This project is being funded by the National Lottery Community Fund.
Q. Is the project safe given the Corona Virus outbreak?
A. Absolutely. Originally we were going to gather together to plant seeds. Obviously this can't happen so, instead, we will carefully and hygienically prepare simple kits and distribute them so that you don't have to ACTUALLY get together with anyone. We might do this by post or by using drop-off and collection points across the parish.
Q. I live outside St. Agnes Parish. Can I sign up?
A. We are very sorry but we only have enough funding to support the project in St. Agnes Parish. This includes Mithian, Mount Hawke, Porthtowan, and Blackwater. You need to select your postcode when you sign up.
Q. I've never grown anything before, can I still take part?
A. YES! 100% Please do sign up. We will be here to help you every step of the way. Who knows, you might discover a new passion for gardening.
