St Peter's Cross Keys Academy in Farndon awarded grant for allotment project
A primary school has used a grant to revitalise its allotment.
St Peter’s Cross Keys Academy, Farndon, was awarded a £715 grant through the Reduce, Reuse, Recycling Fund from Veolia, Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste and recycling contractors.
The revitalised school allotment will be used to teach children about the food lifecycle, from growing, eating, composting and putting back into the soil.
Children are excited to eat food they grow.
The fund offers a helping hand to a wide range of grassroots community, voluntary and school projects.
Over the years support has been granted for a range of projects, such as providing reuse workshops, food waste reduction cookery classes, compost and recycling bins, and enabling recyclable material and upcycling workshops to take place.
It is a community fund to which not-for-profit community groups based in the county of Nottinghamshire (excluding Nottingham) can apply for grants to assist with projects that improve their local environment.
Projects with an environmental/green focus are prioritised but all considered on merit.
