Harrowden Turf will be working with Earth’s Green Guardians (EGG) in 2023 as they work to create a wildflower garden at Penwith College, Penzance.
The project is being undertaken by college Foundation Studies Students. Using Meadowmat Wildflower Turf they will create an EGG wildflower garden demonstration area in a Victorian walled garden on campus. This garden is fast becoming a place for staff and students to connect with nature. It is designed to help address and improve wellbeing as well as being a place for more general earth education.
Earth’s Green Guardians (EGG) is an optimistic Youth Earth Education Programme that strives to improve Environmental Literacy. Initially, born and incubated in Cornwall, EGG empowers youth to make a difference as they learn how they can connect with nature, protect the planet, restore habitat, and prepare for the green economy of the future.
The Penwith campus in Penzance was created following a major £30million redevelopment. Consequently, it incorporates historic buildings with state-of-the-art facilities. Situated in an elevated position in the heart of Penzance, the campus overlooks Mounts Bay, with bus and rail links close by.
Lucy Maggs, Director of Penwith College, says,
“EGG’s work has improved the experience of all living things at the Penwith College campus – humans, animals and wildlife alike!”
