CLEAR we are here
Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration
UPDATE May 2019
The summer growing season is here as CLEAR's seasonal focus switches to gardening at the growing spaces, especially fruit and vegetables, and flowers and shrubs out and about. The first lively Open Day of the year was held at Methil Community Garden and the new amphitheatre pressed into use for a talent contest. New beehives-colonies have been established in both Buckhaven and Methil. In Buckhaven, the Foreshore Improvement led by CLEAR has seen the recent installation of benches and picnic tables, trimtrail, planting of large trees and flowers to complement the path with assistance from Fife Council. Plenty of wildlfowers were also planted, and bulbs will be added in the autumn. The Buckhaven shoreline looking across the Forth is magnificent but placemaking efforts by the community need to continue to capitalise on this asset. Three community litterpicks were organised as part of Clean Up Scotland.
