Local group benefits from Community Fund

12 November 2018

EMR Jersey (the Scrapyard) based in Bellozanne Valley, has awarded its first Community Fund donation to Seedy Sunday Jersey, an island wide community seed swap.

The donation will be used to grow the group’s annual Seedy Sunday Jersey event, which is the only one of its kind in the Channel Islands. The event brings together green minded people including gardeners, seed savers and farmers, as well as a range of community groups and organisations campaigning for sustainable food production and biodiversity.

EMR’s donation will allow the event to be held in a bigger hall, where there will be a variety of stalls offering advice and support on topics such as gardening, growing food, compost making and looking after wildlife. The event aims to bring the community together, while raising awareness of the local environment.

Seedy Sunday Jersey Co-ordinator Fiona Murphy said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to EMR for supporting our green initiative. Hiring a larger venue means that we can bring together more local supporters with a focus on sustainability, biodiversity, healthy living and community activity.”

Kerri Thomas, EMR Jersey Site Manager, said: “We are delighted to support Seedy Sunday Jersey with their event. As a long-standing Jersey business, the Community Fund is our way of supporting the Island and assisting with its sustainability by supporting projects that enhance our Island’s environment.”
