EMSWORTH COMMUNITY PROJECT

When in you live in a community you try to give to give something back to that community – which is exactly what the ‘WemsFest SunFest 2019 Project’  ‘aims to do.

From Easter everyone in the area will be able to access packs of free Sunflower seeds, courtesy of organisers Carol Waldron and Nikki Scott.

The idea came from WemsFest Director Mark Ringwood watching the natural growth of Sunflower seeds falling from the fat-ball bird dispensers in his garden and witnessing at close-hand the effect it had on wildlife in his garden. The growth of Sunflower plants coupled with the immediate attraction of them to birds and bees suggested an immediate opportunity  to create a project which has been initially called ‘Plant(n)ation’  because it’s hoped to roll the project out nationally and feature different seeds on an annual basis.

There will be a prize for the biggest Sunflower when judging takes place at this year’s Emsworth Show.

You will be able to pick  up your free seeds from:  Bookends, Citrus Flowers, Emsworth Hardware,  Vin, Westbourne Animal Feeds, and through: www.wemsfest.com
