Plant your Park is a community led growing project, run by Truro Green Walks in conjunction with the friends of Furniss Island and Truro City Council.  The project aims to encourage local residents to get involved in improving their local green spaces and places while learning gardening skills to grow their own gardens.  The project is currently based on Furniss Island Park, where a previously neglected park boarder is being transformed into a gorgeous growing space, designed and built by the community.
