Planting the seeds of inspiration!
February 18, 2015
Today half of the St Eval Candle Company team made the first of two visits, to the beautiful grounds of People and Gardens. We were met by the founder and hands on man Ken who informed us of all of their fantastic work they have been doing since 1997.
Both Ken and Lorraine started this wonderful charity with the idea of breaking down conformity in the way people with learning disabilities and emotional impairments are helped in developing the essential social skills and confidence in the work place. With equality throughout and the opportunity to build knowledge and life skills, you won't find an unhappy face there.
People and Gardens have developed so much with The Eden project they also supply their kitchens with all of the fresh produce they grow as well as starting up a new Veg Bag Scheme. This includes mouthwatering fresh vegetables which are delivered locally in the St Austell area. This enables real pay for all of the hard work they put in and love.
It is beacause of all of the good they do that we are very proud to announce that we will be collaborating with everyone at People and Gardens very soon. Be sure to keep an eye out for all updates for fundraising and a special project here at the farm.
To Ken and everyone we met today, thank you!
