Forth Eco Site
At the site, the group encourages local people to get involved, either through having their own raised bed or by volunteering to help with the upkeep of the site or by helping with the group’s entry into Beautiful Scotland. It is community funded and tries to use local suppliers whenever possible. Yet again, this year the group has had an increase in the number of young families using the site. They benefit from the advice and experience of the older participants. The group also has help from CCI, a local social enterprise group, and also from the Community Payback team. The group continues to be involved in a food co-op, helping provide vegetables for the local food bank and providing produce for local pensioners.
