Flower growing social enterprise begins at Springfield Allotments, Knowle
A FLOWER growing social enterprise project has begun in Knowle, in a partnership between school children and young adults with learning disabilities.
Bristol business Rockpool Digital Media has also supported and worked alongside the two groups at Springfield Allotments in digging footings, constructing a poly tunnel frame and covering it with plastic ready for potting bulbs.
Now youngsters from Knowle Park Junior School and young adults cared for by Silva Care will choose bulbs, pot them, and nurture the flowers that grow.
The aim is to eventually sell them at school fetes, local markets and pop up shops across South Bristol.
