22nd December 2020 – FUNDING UPDATE!

We are also thrilled to have received crucial funding from KENT RELIANCE PROVIDENT SOCIETY LIMITED Community Fund through Kent Community Foundation (KCF) – UK and from Persimmon Homes to fund the intergenerational outreach element of the Locavore Growing Project. We are working with Folkestone residential care home Brampton Lodge to create a working food growing space in their back garden. With the combination of this funding and wider project funding from UnLtd and The National Lottery Community Fund, we have been able to employ 4 part time staff and create 2 community gardens from scratch, engaging 15 volunteers (and counting), 150 school children and 25 care home residents. This is just the beginning.
