The children of Kinlochleven are smiling this week as they have received a green health home pack put together by the Kinlochleven Community Trust.

The pack includes pencils, seeds, compost, insect magnifier, bamboo whistle, compostable bowl-potted plants, bird seed and activity sheets all designed to encourage the primary, nursery and early years residents to go outside and engage with
nature.

This Green Health activity is part of a programme being delivered by the Highland Green Health Partnership which is aiming to encourage more of us to make use of our local green and blue spaces as part of our ‘Natural Health Service’.

This project was made possible with funding from the EU Leader Rural Development Fund and Scottish Natural Heritage.

It is also asking for parents and care givers to send in photographs of the cress seed eggheads they grow to be shared on social media. Please send entries to Facebook (details below) or via email to admin@kinlochleven.co.uk

Development Officer at the Trust, Lucy Cooke, told us: ‘This has been a wonderful project to be involved in. Engaging in green health and time spent outdoors is more important than ever and to have the chance to spread joy among our youngest residents through such a difficult period has been marvellous.’
