We're delighted to share that Seeds of Hope Scotland has been awarded a grant of £2,000 from the Community Wellbeing Fund, established by the Scottish Government to help organisations support people affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
The grant will be used to supply four groups in Scotland with wildflower seeds, so they can help improve the mental health and wellbeing of their service users and local communities. More details to follow!
We're so happy to be working with Scottish seed producer Scotia Seeds for this project. We'll be using their 'get nectar-rich quick' mix - a gorgeous combination of annual, biennial and perennial wildflower species. Here are just a few of them! (Photos Scotia Seeds' own):
This mix is fantastic for pollinators, and will re-grow for several years in a row - long after the Covid-19 pandemic has passed.
We think this will help give people hope for the future - something to tend and nurture as we all find a new way forward.
As Audrey Hepburn put it so well, "to plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.”
Thank you so much to all our supporters for being part of our journey so far.
