Porthleven Food Festival 2013

Fantastic food, fun and festivities!

A great sunny day at Porthleven was had by all and the link between the festival and Penrose meant that growing your own food was the fore front of our stand.

Polly our lovely trainee ranger helped lots of children make a newspaper plant pots that can be planted straight into the soil and also organised a broad bean competition! "How many broad beans are in a jar?" the winners were a couple on holiday in Porthleven, who won a bunch of Penrose daffodils, well done!
(and the answer for anyone wanting to know was 686!)


We also had...

 National Trust membership

and face painting/badge making


At Penrose there is a group of volunteers in the process of restoring the walled garden, growing vegetables, uncovering paths and creating a place to come and enjoy the tranquillity, so pop in if you're passing!

If you are interested in getting involved with volunteering at Penrose either on Tuesdays (walled garden) or Thursdays (conservation) please ring the office on: 01326 561407.

We love the food festival in Porthleven so we are already looking forward to next year, hope to see you there!
