South West Partnerships
Growing Food and Composting
This three year project, previously known as the Cornwall Community Food and Composting Project, was funded by the Big Lottery Fund's Local Food Scheme and was a partnership between FCFCG and Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change. It broke down food growing and composting into easy and practical steps by supporting people to grow food and compost at home in containers or in their gardens. It also supported six groups setting up their own community garden project, with the aim of making fresh, organic produce more easily accessible to people throughout Cornwall.
