The community volunteer group, Brighter Bervie was constituted in 2013 to enhance Inverbervie's environment and community spirit, mainly through gardening projects.
The volunteers have created a number of gardens for community use and visitor enjoyment. Public art sculptures are featured on these sites which are linked by a healthy walking trail. In partnership with local schools and SAMH, fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers are being planted along the trail for people to pick and eat. The group also enters the pallet competition at Gardening Scotland. Anyone who can benefit from therapeutic gardening activity is invited to join the group.
