Bute in Bloom
Bute in Bloom is a voluntary umbrella group on the Isle of Bute, which promotes co-operation between publicly funded and voluntary organisations involved in horticulture and the environment, such as the allotment groups and Horticultural Society. Current projects include a Stalled Space gap site, seed bank, heritage potatoes, biodiversity, litter strategies, tree planting, litter picking and beach cleaning. The group shares ideas and news through its Facebook page and through the local Press. It brings together a wide range of age groups, backgrounds, individuals and voluntary organisations to improve and enhance the island environment. The group promotes social inclusion and education through the local schools and youth organisations.
