Finding hidden treasure in Scotland

Lochgelly Sunflower Nursery

A geode is a rough rock that looks ordinary on the outside but holds a treasure of crystals within. Lochgelly’s Sunflower Nursery is such a geode. In this ex-mining town struggling for regeneration, the beauty of this setting makes a strong statement to children and their families about how they are respected and valued. It gives children a standard to take into life. Visiting Lochgelly brought Keats’ words to mind: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty”.

This case study may inspire you to look at your setting with new eyes. Don't miss the video!
