C L E A R Buckhaven & Methil

Community-led Environmental Action for Regeneration:

Opening Times - Volunteer Activities resumed

Think Global ACT LOCAL - join in our efforts to combat climate change through practical grassroots actions.  More Levenmouth residents needed to make a vital difference

CLEAR activities have continued throughout the lockdown but at a reduced level and are now almost fully back in action. We still cannot accommodate organised groups but individual volunteers are very welcome to come along for a session at the two Community Gardens on Wednesdays and/or Thursdays.  the bike workshop is up and running for repairs and sales.

Autumn 2021 - Organised Volunteer activities every Weds and Thurs 10-3.30 (or come for a couple of hours) at Methil Community Garden (end of cul-de-sac off 24-26 Kirkland Drive) or Buckhaven Growing Space (entrance between 14-16 Omar Cres), also at the Sandwell Workshop (47 Sandwell St)

  • Community Gardens (Methil & Buckhaven) :  every Wed & Thurs 10-4 (and may work out from there)

  • 47 Sandwell St Bike Repair & Sales:   every Thurs 13- 15.30 and Saturday 11.00- 15.00

  • 36 College St (sales of fruit, veg, info):  Tues-Thurs 10-4

  • Weekend events :  as advertised


CLEAR continue volunteer activities two days per week (Wednesdays &Thursdays) with occasional weekend events.

Weekly Update @ 10 October 2021:   The great autumn planting of spring bulbs starts this week.  It takes a major human effort to plant in excess of 100,000 spring bulbs each year along roadsides and parks though we are looking for some mechanical assistance through use of a hired turfcutter.  With fewer volunteers on the ground at present, it’s a bigger challenge than usual so anyone willing to help would be welcome to the first session at Buckhaven Foreshore on Thursday 14th from 10.  As well as bringing colour after the winter and providing early pollen for bees, one great attraction of bulbs is they require no ongoing maintenance.  

There is plenty of work ongoing at the two community gardens with Methil Garden gearing up for a Halloween Open Day on Saturday 30th October.  Some October holiday events are also running during the weeks.  Two young persons have joined CLEAR for 6 months under the Community Jobs Scotland scheme.  Donations of bikes, parts, paint or tools always welcome as is anyone interested in participating in indoors (kitchen, hub, workshop) or outdoors (gardens, planting) sessions.
