Forth Eco Project
The project is community funded and led, and tackles ecological and sustainable issues within its district to enhance the environment and improve community. There is an 'Eco-Site' which has community organic growing beds and a double poly-tunnel. The site generates its own power through solar panels and harvests rainwater. The group primarily uses the site for organic vegetable growing, flowers for the street displays, and to hold group workshops. During 2015 the members made natural pesticides, comfrey feed, traditional hazel hurdles, salves and balms from calendula infused oil, and built compost bins. The group also goes into the community and works on neglected flower beds, litter picking, wildlife support work, and has just recently began conservation work in partnership with the Forestry Commission.
