Rain and sleet didn’t deter local school and community gardeners from coming to the tool giveaway at the Eden Project organised by our new regional coordinator Kevin Marsh and Eden’s Karen Dawkins.

Seven organisations went away with 211 tools which had been repaired in the Tools Shed workshop at Dartmoor Prison.

Cann Bridge School now have the tools needed to start their project and Plymouth College of Art’s allotment project is now equipped. “The kids will love using the tools to garden in our outside area,” said Pensilva Pre-School. “It will make their day.”
