FARE Lochend Community Allotment

It's Your Neighbourhood logo
2022 Certificate Level 5 - Outstanding

The group is working with local people, the young people of Fare, 5 nursery schools, 2 primary schools, Busy Bees childminding group, Jammie Dodgers After School Club, Daffodil Elders Club, and 2 family clubs to revamp and regenerate Lochend Community Allotments which have lain dormant for several years. The schools are fully inspired to be growing their own vegetables and fruits in their plots, and helping to create an urban oasis with wildflower garden, bug hotel and lots of upcycled features, with the help of the group’s resident gardener.

In 2022, the group were recognised with a Keep Scotland Beautiful 'Beautiful Scotland & It's Your Neighbourhood' discretionary award - joint winner of the Involving Children and Young People Award.
