Community-Led Environmental Action for Regeneration

UPDATE  March 2018

Recent Arctic weather has raised concern that the 65,000 spring bulbs planted along Buckhaven and Methil roadsides this past autumn, as well as hundreds of thousands in previous years, may suffer.  Since this cold spell arrived with only a month of the tree planting season left, we will be rushing to complete the task even with Council assistance for the larger trees. So a large volunteer effort lies ahead.   We managed some sessions with Princes Trust as well as other regular groups while the College sessions resume after Easter.  We have been hosting various placements who provide additional capacity.

The first planting of new Methil Growing Space has taken place with some allotments now being marked out. A composting toilet and clearance of old vegetation are key immediate tasks to be completed.  Staff for the new Methil-Buckhaven Green Regeneration Project have been recruited - for 18 months - and this will get seriously underway in March.
Some progress is being made on the new workshop premises in Sandwell Street. This facility is already proving invaluable for indoor tasks - from crafts, recycling, woodwork and more - which have been more in demand during poor weather.  We completed our first season of interesting environmental films and plan another instructive series soon.  The latest print newsletter is now ready for distribution.

Given the pressing tree planting and Methil Growing Space tasks, there are fewer special events planned this coming month.  However, there are volunteering opportunities of all kinds available to anyone interested, for as few or as many hours per week as you can manage.  Get in touch to donate bikes, plants, garden items, paint, wood or similar or a little bit of your time.  It can be interesting, sociable and therapeutic and we offer free hot midday meals.   Drop into 36 College St, tel 01592-713078
