Heather Lane Nurseries.
Following a trip to Heather Lane Nurseries at Canonstown, between Penzance and St Ives, we have begun to broaden our range of produce by buying their vegetables. Our veg-boxes and farmers market stalls have recently included swedes, headed lettuces, butternut squashes, black Tuscan kale (cabalonero), and pumpkin portions from Heather Lane. The nurseries have been operating since the 1980s, and their primary objective is to provide a place where adults with learning difficulties can contribute to a working environment. We were very impressed with what we saw, the amount of work that has gone into the success of the project, and the positive effect it obviously has on people's lives. We look forward to working closely with Heather Lane in the coming season.
