Having campaigned successfully for a pesticide free zone in the villages, the group became the first community in the UK to take on the management and maintenance of all the green spaces, with a local authority agreement. They have created many garden areas, wildlife habitats, fruit and vegetable plots and their big project is the development of an historical site found by the group only 8 months ago, the Edmonstone Waggonway Wall, and a child miner memorial garden. A film has been made, and they have already published a book about this historical site. The group is working with the school and takes children out every Tuesday to plant and maintain their own garden areas.
