About us

Growing in Lochgelly is a voluntary environmental action group that seeks to develop environmental projects that help improve our local ecology and visually improve the town.

We are a small team of dedicated volunteers that came together in 2016 in response to the Lochgelly Community Action Plan which identified a need for the environmental improvement of our public spaces.

With an initial funding of £1500 from the Lochgelly C.A.P. participatory budget, Growing in Lochgelly has managed to develop a range of local initiatives that enhance the local environment.
