This project will transform a derelict building in Morrab Gardens into a study centre that will benefit the whole community. It is the start of an effort to breath new life into Morrab Gardens.

Very best wishes with this project. I feel it to be really important to the general public re. Knowledge of horticulture and the pleasure of walking in the park,so good for mind and body.

Heather Howe 10th April 2018

What a fabulous project! I am a professional artist and very keen gardener and I love Morrab gardens. This would add so much value to people in Penzance and the rest of Cornwall and I hope my small contribution will help. If you ever hold an art auction or similar to raise money I would happy donate a piece of artwork to help! ( See my public FB page, Heather Howe Artist) All good wishes, Heather.

Good luck with this project. Anything that teaches the future generations about the environment around them, can only be a good thing. I always loved Morrab Gardens and hope the new development only further enhances it.

I was walking by only last week and thought what a beautiful building of character. Browsing social media as you do I came across your project and am pleased to contribute.
